Puget Sound Chinook Harvest Hearing, TIME CHANGED

Puget Sound Chinook are listed under the Endangered Species Act. Even as these iconic, keystone species face extinction, many wild populations of Chinook in the sound are still subjected to over 50% harvest. If we hope to ever see any substantial recovery of Chinook in the sound harvest practices have to change. We posted a few weeks ago about a hearing on July 10th at the Seattle Federal Courthouse. The time has changed and the judge will now hear oral arguments at 9AM. Turn out and show your support for these magnificent wild fish before its too late. See more information on Chinook salmon harvest issues at the wild fish conservancy.
