Entry Description: Salmon net pens operated by two local indian tribes and the Port of Seattle to protect and raise Coho (Silver) salmon for delayed release. The pens are metal-frame floats held in place by submerged anchors and covered with netting to prevent entry by fish-eating birds and mammals. Depending on the strength of the season hatcheries provide 300,000 to 500,000 fish to be raised here.
