This method of fishing results in the best quality wild salmon possible, while protecting unwanted bycatch. It has been called the most sustainable method of salmon fishing that exists. The area around the San Juan Islands is the only place in the world this type of fishing takes place. If you visit Lummi Island, you can see the fishery take place right from the road. It is easy to tell when a "haul" is taking place, as you can hear the excited shouts and see the splashing salmon as the net comes up.
