It's been my opinion for a long time that the $$ being made in casinos should offset the rights to collect dwindling salmon and steelhead stocks until such time that they recover enough to be gillnetted again.

Decisions are made to be revised to meet the times, we should not be gillnetting in these times. It's a well known fact that casinos are making enough money for the 1-2% of the Washington population that came to North America before other settlers from the east.

IMHO they should be driven to choose between these rights, not given both.
