RG, I am a little dazed and confused too. In your letter, you lay out all the complications and difficulties that emerged from the WP process that created the current WP. These were the result of difficult decisions regarding the mix of conservation, hatchery production, and logistics and management of the sport and commercial fisheries within WP. This produced the current WP, warts and all. You recommend the Commission "do nothing". The current WP has some language in it that is open to interpretation. Apparently, there is a difference of opinion as to whether WDFW is following the wording of the WP. If the Commission does nothing, what will change in the next two years to meet the challenges? Without some more direction/clarification from the Commission won't the meandering continue and won't the evaluation of how well the management actions met the WP by 2020 be in the fog too?
