When WDFW meets escapement 80% of the time, then we can talk about relaxing the 3 out of 5 penalty box. They make escapement ONE time and want to consider relaxing the "penalty?" This simply re-confirms a "harvest at any cost" philosophy within the harvest management group. I think the "bluntness" of the 3 for 5 rule is exactly the sort of restriction necessary to realign harvest management thinking to include the serious consideration of fish conservation.
