The survey was conducted from 9-13 July, and included the entire inshore area from Pt. Grenville (including Destruction Island) to Pillar Point. Biologists of the Biological Resources Division of the United States Geological Survey, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Olympic National Park, Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Seattle Aquarium conducted the survey cooperatively. Counting conditions this year ranged from good to excellent. We wish to thank the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service whose funding support made the survey possible this year.
