  • New US-Canada salmon agreement proposed

    By Rachel La Corte
    Olypia, Washington (AP)

    The U.S. and Canada have reached a new 10-year agreement aimed at preventing overfishing of salmon off the western coast of Canada and southeast Alaska.

    The plan announced during May by the Pacific Salmon Commission could most affect Chinook salmon, which migrate from Washington state north to the waters of British Columbia and Alaska, where they often get caught by sport and commercial fisheries, preventing their return to Washington’s waters.
