Salmo, I guess I would consider the rules change proposals and other suggestions submitted to WDFW by myself, WSC and hundreds of others over decades as "constructive alternatives." Ron's letter above (thanks for including) says WA fish are owned by the commercial fishing industry, with the tribes and Boldt responsible for any remaining problems. Maybe so. As I stated above, this does not appear to be the problem anywhere else. Possibly we are at the end of a long history of poor management decisions due to commercial dollars and tribal litigation. If this is the case, I suppose we'll just need to watch this play out to the bitter end.
