Actually it is a bit more complicated than that. The Satsop sub basin is about 30% of the Chehalis Basin Coho. If the target is Satsop then to get one Coho to a tribal commercial in the Satsop the QIN would have to allow three to go above them. The watershed is like a tree with the QIN harvesting at the bottom of the trunk. If you put commercial harvest in a trib then the QIN methodology falls apart as will the states way of managing. Interesting little problem.

Then the Chehalis get a % of the harvestable above the rez and they come from the states share which means they have to get them up. Again interesting problem.
