Commission to be briefed on wild salmon policy documents
OLYMPIA -- A draft Wild Salmonid Policy developed jointly by the Washington
Department of Fish and Wildlife and western Washington treaty tribes will be the focus
of attention during a meeting of the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission
Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Department staff will brief the commission on the draft joint policy and on
another document which would provide additional policy guidance to the department
concerning hatchery, harvest and habitat concerns.
The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in the Pinnacle Room of the Mountaineers'
Building, 300 Third Ave. W. in Seattle. Public comment will be taken.
The commission is scheduled to consider action on both the joint policy and the
guidance documents in November.
