Squaxin Tribe comes up with funding to keep chinook production going in a South Sound hatchery

A state-run southern Puget Sound hatchery will get a boost thanks to the support of a local tribe.

The Squaxin Island Tribe has produced $72,000 to prevent a 75 percent cutback in chinook production at the state’s Deschutes River salmon hatchery in Tumwater.

The hatchery has continually produced four-million chinook, but a lack of legislative funding would have reduced it dramatically. This hatchery is vital and contributes to many fisheries from Puget Sound to Alaska.

For more information on this story go to the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission website.
