DECEMBER 6th WILLAPA MANAGEMENT PLAN PUBLIC MEETING

DECEMBER 6th WILLAPA MANAGEMENT PLAN PUBLIC MEETING

Hi Everyone,

 

Here is the e mail sent out today by Region 6 on tomorrow's meeting in Raymond on the Willapa Management Plan. As always folks participate if you can and especially those of you who live in the Willapa area. It is your right as a citizen and non participation will only get more of the same.

 

FROM R-6:

 

I wanted to give you an update on where we are with regards to the Willapa Bay Salmon Management Policy development and the public meeting on Saturday so you can plan accordingly.

 

As most of you are aware, our contractor fell behind on development of a Willapa Bay specific AHA model, and this has put a bump in the road for us.  Late yesterday, a handful of preliminary Chinook options were put through the model by the contractor.  We have not yet seen those option results nor had any time to review them to ensure they are correct.  Options have not been run through coho nor chum yet either.  As such, we are not prepared to discuss an evaluation of the options on Saturday.  We still believe that Saturday can be productive however.  

 

Our tentative agenda is:

 

1.  60 minutes:  AHA model presentation by Andy Appleby (this would be similar to what Andy presented to at the Ad-Hoc meeting).

 

2.  30 minutes: Review of 6 options to be reviewed with AHA.  Specifically, what did we choose to run for a “recreational option” and a “commercial option”.

 

3.  30 minutes:  Review of the current draft policy.

 

4.  60 minutes:  Public input.

 

Cheers
