the concern for the quinault netters is nice but honestly, little will be done with the current framework of managment that the quinault use. it is a production fishery that relies on hatchery production to bolster their commercial catches. we've taught them well when it comes to poor managment practices when it comes to fisheries. the quinault is a production fishery for salmon and steelhead with zero regard for wild fish. the current hatchery production and wild fish management are like water and oil.... they do not mix. how to fix it? well, first you have to believe change is possible. second their needs to be trust, which may be impossible considering the history surrounding treaty fisheries and the historical destruction of wild salmon and steelhead runs by non-tribal interests. why would they trust us now? ask yourself with the long standing mistrust and hate between non-tribal and tribal fishermen (sport and commercial) what makes now any different? truly rebuilding wild runs isn't about wild steelhead release, replacing some culverts, and putting salmon carcasses in streams. it will require a seachange of massive proportions that would mean no hatchery plants, massive habitat protection and restoration, and pain for all user groups but especially for consumptive user groups. you would have a massive negative reaction to this not only from the tribes, but from sportfishermen, loggers, and all other people with an interest in the status quo of hatcheries and habitat devastation. i wish you good luck and will help how i can, but i realize the goal may be unattainable no matter how right the cause is.
