OLYMPIA — The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will accept public comments during a meeting scheduled Dec. 6-7 in Olympia on draft policy options for managing salmon fisheries on Grays Harbor.
The commission, a citizen panel appointed by the governor to set policy for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, will convene in Room 172 of the Natural Resources Building, 1111 Washington St. S.E. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. both days.
An agenda for the meeting is available at http://wdfw.wa.gov/commission/
Over the past month, state fishery managers have been working with a citizen committee and the public to develop draft options for a new policy to address conservation and catch allocation for Grays Harbor salmon fisheries.
The goal is to develop a policy that helps ensure spawning goals are met for wild salmon returning to the basin and to give anglers and commercial fishers a clearer picture of what fishing opportunities they can expect each year.
During the commission meeting, WDFW staff will provide a briefing on the development of the new draft policy options and additional opportunities later this year for the public to participate in the refinement of the proposed policy.
After receiving the briefing, the commission will then take public comment on the draft policy options, which will be available early next week on the department’s website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/fisheries/grays_harbor_salmon/ . The website also includes information that was provided during recent public meetings, as well as a scheduled of upcoming meetings.
