Pacific Fishery Management Council Votes to Close King Salmon Fishing Season Along West Coast for 2023 Season

The Pacific Fishery Management Council has voted to close king salmon fishing season along much of the West Coast for the 2023 season due to near-record low numbers of the fish returning to California's rivers. This closure is a major blow to the fishing industry, but is necessary to ensure the long-term health of the Chinook salmon population. The Council is now working with state and federal agencies to develop a plan to help the Chinook salmon population recover.
