Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife FISHING RULE CHANGE
600 Capitol Way North, Olympia, WA 98501-1091

October 13, 2008

Daily limit for Humboldt squid increases

Action: Increase the daily limit from 5 to no daily limit.

Effective dates: Immediately through Oct. 19, 2008

Species affected: Humboldt squid

Location: Grays Harbor, Marine Area 2-2.

Reasons for action: A large number of dead and dying Humboldt squid are in the Westport Boat Basin. These squid have spawned and increased harvest will not pose any conservation concerns for this species. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.

Information contact: Greg Bargmann, (360) 902-2825.
