From the Wahkiakum County Eagle:
“According to Carrie Backman, Director, Washington State University Wahkiakum County Extension, Wahkiakum County Marine Resources Committee (MRC) has new funding through the state legislature as part of the Washington Coast Restoration Initiative to help local fishermen with value added processing and marketing.
This funding will allow new access to ice and processing tools, as well as workshops on processing and marketing. The MRC is seeking commercial fishermen to guide next steps, including design and location of ice and processing facilities, as well as selection of workshop topics.
There will be a meeting Wednesday, May 4 at the Grays River Grange at 6 p.m., for commercial fishermen interested in working with the MRC on these next steps. All commercial fishermen are invited to attend.”
