Precipitation returned to the region this year, but that does not mean everything returned to normal.

Some salmon species are turning up in the ocean in small numbers, small enough to concern the people at the Pacific Fisheries Management Council

The council is due to make a decision on commercial fishing seasons for the ocean in early April; the possibility looms that the season could be short or interrupted, or both.  PFMC staffer Mike Burner visits with details.
