Tribes Protect Salmon Resource Through Monitoring

FORKS (December 11, 2003) – The Timber Fish Wildlife (TFW)/Forests and Fish rules provide opportunity for tribes to participate in the review process
that occurs before a forest practice application is approved. This is important to all tribes because timber harvest and associated activities such as road building have the potential of affecting salmon harvest by impacting the resources that produce fish. As comanagers of the salmon resource, the tribes are entitled to 50 percent of the harvestable salmon resource.
