Washington's plan for $50m to fishing industry moves forward

Recommended Posts

Though it groups the charter industry and commercial fishermen, it looks like Washington is one step closer to distributing $50m to folks who have seen a revenue drop from last year (so, basically, everyone):



Under the draft plan, industry members who experienced a gross revenue loss from January through July 2020 greater than 35 percent of their 2015-2019 average would be eligible to apply for federal relief funding. (Exceptions are available for industry members without a full five-year history). Applicants can choose smaller window periods within the timeframe so long as the period is at least 28 days. Washington-based commercial fishers who fish in Alaska are also eligible.

Money earned from freshwater species and retail sales are excluded. Eligible commercial fishery participants must include all their revenues regardless of whether they landed the fish.
