Anglers fishing in marine areas 1 and 2 may retain two salmon per day, only one of which may be a chinook. Those fishing in marine areas 3 and 4 are allowed to retain up to two chinook as part of their two-fish daily limit, plus two additional pink salmon.
In all four marine areas, anglers must release wild coho salmon.
