The North Kitsap Herald reported on the latest of the proposed dock for the town of Port Gamble, which is across the bay from the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe:
“Out of the Shellfish Beds, Into The Pockets of OPG”
PORT GAMBLE — A marina at the old mill site in Port Gamble could generate tourism dollars for the sleepy little town. However, that promise comes at a price.
Across the water, the Port Gamble S’Klallam tribal members use the bay to build their economy and culture, generating income from shellfish harvesting in and around Port Gamble Bay. With a permanent dock structure, closure for shellfish harvesting in Port Gamble Bay would be imminent.
