Need to look very carefully at how the sharing is worded. It was my understanding that the 50:50 applies to all fish landed in WA, caught in the waters of WA and the ocean outside 3 miles. Not BC, not AK, not OR but all the rest.

I think, based on what I have seen in the Reel News a year or so ago, the State now divides the catch 50% "outside" and 50% Tribal inside. That means that QIN would get 50% of the harvestable from the Quinult and Chehalis. It would not include, as Indian fish, anything taken in the ocean trolling. Anybody remember Makah??? Tribal trolling, tribal by catch in Fraser fisheries are all supposed to count against the Tribal share.
