Huge salmon returns expected again this year

WA State Farm Bureau report - 3/7/02 

THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF FISH & WILFLIFE IS FORECASTING A HUGE RETURN of 677,000 chinook salmon to the Columbia River this fall – even more than last year’s 545,000 chinook – making it “one of the largest returns of the past half century.” 

Fish & Wildlife is also expecting a stronger return of Puget Sound chinook, although it said in a forecast released Monday that coho returns could be down from 2001. The federal Pacific Fishery Management Council will meet March 11-15 to set salmon harvests for 2002.
