ANOTHER WILLAPA UPDATE WITH CHANGES
Well the latest draft on the Willapa Policy is out and about. Some changes and a new option. So here is a link to WDF&W's website where one can down load it.
Several changes but things to look for are:
FYI Alternative E is basically a synopsis of the essential policy elements endorsed by the Twin Harbors Advocacy as well as the WB Advisory Members representing the recreational and conservation sectors.
The principal difference between D and E is that Alternative E seeks a Contributing stock designation for Naselle Chinook without the 'pie in the sky' ramp up to 3.3 million hatchery production. Instead a much more realistic and sustainable hatchery production goal of 0.8 million is proposed.
So take a look and see what you think.
