Media coverage of shellfish settlement

The Kitsap Sun covered the tribes’ and shellfish growers settlement:

Washington shellfish growers won’t have to share clams and oysters grown on their beaches, thanks to a $33 million legal settlement with 17 Puget Sound tribes.

The agreement, finalized Tuesday, has been in the works for 17 years — ever since U.S. District Judge Edward Rafeedie ruled that tribes are entitled to take up to half of the naturally grown shellfish. His ruling was an interpretation of treaties signed between the tribes and the federal government in the 1850s.

The Sun also did a follow up story here, and the Peninsula Daily News , The Seattle PI and The Seattle Times covered it as well.
