Port Gamble Continues Dock FightMar 31st, 2008 • Category: NWIFC Blog
The North Kitsap Herald reported on the latest of the proposed dock for the town of Port Gamble, which is across the bay from the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe:
“Out of the Shellfish Beds, Into The Pockets of OPG”
PORT GAMBLE — A marina at the old mill site in Port Gamble could generate tourism dollars for the sleepy little town. However, that promise comes at a price.
Across the water, the Port Gamble S’Klallam tribal members use the bay to build their economy and culture, generating income from shellfish harvesting in and around Port Gamble Bay. With a permanent dock structure, closure for shellfish harvesting in Port Gamble Bay would be imminent.
