OLYMPIA -- The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has set four public meetings to discuss this year's recreational shrimp and crab fisheries in Hood Canal.

At the meetings, WDFW biologists will present results of a recent shrimp test fishery, review the 1999 fishery and discuss options for the 2000 season.

The meetings are scheduled for 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the following dates and locations.

  • April 10: Chimacum High School Auditorium, 91 West Valley Rd., Chimacum
