Commissioners will hold a public workshop Thursday, with members of the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission to review a 5-year-old policy that significantly changed salmon fisheries on the Columbia River, according to a news release.
Commissioners from both states will also receive an update on seal and sea lion predation of salmon and other fish in the Columbia River, as well as efforts to recover southern resident killer whales.
On Friday, the Washington commission will discuss and take public input on the North of Falcon salmon-setting policy for January 2019 through December 2020 and on the salmon management policy for Willapa Bay.
