Tribal sales of summer chinook, sockeye and steelhead along the Columbia River started this week.
The fresh fish are scheduled to be sold at Columbia Point Marina on Columbia Point Drive in Richland. Only cash is accepted.
The Columbia River basin is experiencing record returns of sockeye, and the tribes are expected to harvest about 32,000. Snake River sockeye are an endangered species, but their numbers are increasing and only a small number are harvested, according to the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission.
The tribes also plan to catch about 27,000 summer chinook, which are not endangered.
