state & tribal sharing of shellfish


We and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife enter into annual management plans with specific Tribes on a Regional Basis for both geoduck and intertidal shellfish harvest.

A December 20, 1994 U.S. District court decision (U.S. v. Washington, 873 F. Supp. 1422 W.D. Wa 1994) by Judge Edward Rafeedie affirmed and quantified the Puget Sound Treaty Indian Tribes’ (Tribes) right to 50% of the harvestable surplus of geoducks within their usual and accustomed grounds and stations. A subsequent federal district court order and judgement (U.S. v. Washington, 898 F. Supp. 1453 W.D. Wa 1995) confirmed the Tribes’ management role.

Management Plans - Other State/Tribal Management Plans will be posted as soon as they are completed.
