The fisher is now listed on the state endangered species list.
It was reintroduced to the North Olympic Peninsula from Canada in 2008 to 2011. Before then, the most recent reported sighting of a fisher on the Peninsula was in 1969.
Staff Writer Jeremy Schwartz’s report on next year’s fisher study appears in tomorrow’s print and online Peninsula Daily News.
