Colville Confederated Tribes’ Selective Salmon Harvest

While I am normally one to bash the hell out of tribal fishing practices, I have to say that it is nice to see at least one tribe making an effort to change their fishing methods to protect the native Chinook Salmon on the Columbia river.  For the last three years, thanks to funding from the Bonneville Power Administration, the Colville Tribes have been experimenting with a new selective commercial Salmon harvesting method.  Check it out!

If more tribes actually made and effort to save the Salmon, I would probably quit yelling about it so much.  I would love to get anyone’s input on this program and if it is going to work, or if it is just for show.
