PNPTC Fishing Regulations

In accordance with their co-management responsibilities as outlined in U.S. v. Washington, Tribes are required to issue a regulation prior to the opening of a fishery. These regulations outline the specifics of a fishery, including the time, place and species to be harvested, and are sent to other affected tribes and agencies. Regulations filed by the Point No Point Treaty Council are listed by species. * note you may need to refresh/reload your (browser) page to get current regulations.
