Video: NWIFC/WDFW South Sound chum salmon test fishery

For more than 30 years, the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have been conducting a test fishery near Kingston, WA for chum salmon. The purpose is to give fisheries managers an idea of the size of the run that is headed for South Sound.

The fishery takes place over a course of up to six weeks in October and November, with the purse seiner, M/V Sound Star.
