The Clallam County Marine Resources Committee is hosting a workshop tonight on the status of rockfish in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Several species of the fish are believed to be decline. Copper, quillback and brown rockfish were considered for federal endangered species listings. But the National Marine Fisheries Service said earlier this year they did not need protection under the Endangered Species Act.
Today’s workshop will be held at Clallam Bay School. The workshop begins at 7 p.m., following a social period at 6:30 p.m.
