All I am saying is that a plan that met conservation goals and supported a robust rec marine fishery was possible, but not chosen due to the priority on commercial harvest.

Its called implementing the 2010 plan with hard caps on NOR chinook. You might have to lower naselle impacts to 14%, but it could have been done. Under the 2010 plan willapa R was stabilizing, which left forks cr production intact.

I agree the plan approved is not the worst possible outcome for the recs, but it s a long ways from the best possible outcome.
