FISH AND WILDLIFE
Date of Adoption: August 24, 2001.
Purpose: Amend commercial fishing rules.
Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 220-33-01000A; and amending WAC 220-33-010.
Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 77.12.047.
Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.
Reasons for this Finding: Harvestable numbers of salmon are available under the harvest guideline. Impacts on ESA-listed stocks are expected to be within the guidelines of the fall management agreement and the biological opinion. This regulation is consistent with compact action of August 24, 2001. There is insufficient time to promulgate permanent rules.
