Council Votes To Limit Salmon Fishing(Associated Press)


The bad news from our fisheries keeps on mounting.

The Pacific Fisheries Management Council has adopted limited summer salmon fishing seasons off the Washington and northern Oregon coasts. At a meeting on Thursday in Vancouver, the council avoided a complete closure of the season, a possibility that had been discussed in March. The Columbian newspaper reports season closure discussion was prompted by weak coho runs forecast for 2016 in Puget Sound waters and many coastal streams. Two years of warm water in the north Pacific Ocean are considered the likely cause. (Associated Press)
