Derelict gillnets are lost in Puget Sound each year. In 1992 NW Straits Initiative decided to take the issue on. They applied for funding and throughout the last 20 years, they salvaged around 4000 nets on the bottom of Puget Sound. The STATE does not mandate that commercial fishermen report lost nets. Therefore they continue to fish for DECADES.

Please sign our letter or write your own.
Please fill out the additional information below the signature. That will put you on the list for future (high priority emails) about issues affecting your enjoyment of River or Saltwater fishing. You may opt out and discontinue the emails if you desire. It is CCA policy to not bother folks with unnecessary emails.

This will go to your Senator, whom we want to vote for the bill that requires commercial fishermen to REPORT lost nets within a specified time period (48 hours) This bill will save hundreds of fish, crab and birds. It will have a compounding effect on spawning activities of any marine species.
