The APA process requires the 30 day comment period and the agency can use comments or not. It is purely a legal requirement. I do not recall any significant changes ever after the CR 102 is filed.

Lets get this straight, it is about impacts. Nets could release Coho but most would be dead with phony mortality rates. The keep is the cleanest way to insure accurate impact numbers and get the nets in and out. Now that the three days of NT Nets is eating up a huge number of the marine impacts ( A & D ) is another discussion.

As to Rec retention of NOR Coho you would likely be off the water in mid Oct to Jan 1 in river if we did the retain NOR thing.
Dazed and confused.............the fog is closing in
