Grays Harbor Fishing Gillnet Waste Video

They say that 10% of the fishermen catch 90% of the fish. By some accounts it’s more like 26% of the License holders catch upwards of 92% of our fish. Do yourself a favor and take 20 minutes to watch this video. There is a lot of historical info on this new site:

The “Historical Bias” video documents how WDFW has historically awarded 83 percent of salmon available for harvest in the Chehalis Basin to commercial gill netters operating in the Bay and lower portion of the river. In the Willapa estuary, approximately 25 commercial gill net license holders were awarded nearly 91 percent of the available harvest for Chinook, Coho, and Chum.
