The more one looks at Willapa fisheries it becomes appallingly apparent that WA state taxpayers are being fleeced to subsidize a welfare gillnet salmon fishing fleet, while at the same time nearly wiping out natural origin runs of chinook, coho, and chum salmon. In the public interest of ALL the state's citizens, the preferred alternative would be to close all Willipa Bay hatcheries and save the taxpayers a load of dollars and save the natural origin salmon, which likely would remain productive enough to support a reasonable amount of terminal area recreational salmon fishing. Win-win!
