WDFW fishery managers are scheduled to brief the Fish and Wildlife Commission on the development of the draft policy during the commission’s November meeting in Olympia.

Warren said WDFW will develop a range of policy options that will be discussed during the December commission meeting in Olympia. The commission is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the draft policy options during its January meeting in Olympia.

The commission is scheduled to make a final decision at its February meeting in Olympia.

Throughout the process, WDFW will periodically update its website at http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/fisheries/grays_harbor_salmon/with more information on the development of the draft policy.
