Another convenient closure cuz paid employees can't get their work done on time? The unrestricted spring fishery has once again gained popularity and hasn't gone unnoticed by those in charge. Anyone have any real science and numbers to validate their lies?

Effective date: May 15, 2024, until further notice.

Species affected: Salmon

Location: Marine Area 13 (South Puget Sound).

Rule: Salmon fishing closed.

Reason for action: Pre-existing Endangered Species Act (ESA) coverage for the effects of Puget Sound salmon fisheries expires on May 15, 2024. Federal ESA consultations on 2024-25 Puget Sound salmon fisheries are ongoing but are unlikely to be completed by May 15. Marine Area 13 salmon fisheries are known to intercept listed Chinook in the May period. Accordingly, Marine Area 13 will temporarily close for salmon fishing starting May 15, 2024. Salmon fisheries in Marine Area 13 will re-open when ESA authorization is received for the proposed 2024-25 Puget Sound salmon fishing package.

This closure is expected to be short in duration, as federal ESA review of this yearís salmon fisheries is anticipated to be complete within the next several days.

Wdfw does annual esa permitting because they and the tribes canít get it together to do a long term plan.  They donít get the annual process done to keep ma 13 open even though there is little to no esa impact. They just donít have the authorization yet.
