Some in Washington state also believe the council is stacked too heavily in favor of Alaska. So much so that traditional North Pacific fishing industry strongholds in Washington and Oregon are now in jeopardy.
It's all laid out in this fascinating 15-page appeal to Washington and Oregon political leaders.
As you'll see at the end, the authors include some very familiar names.
The word is that people are making the rounds in Washington, D.C., right now, urging lawmakers to add more Oregon and Washington seats on the council to counter the powerful Alaska majority.
Hmmm. Are we about to see an interstate war break out?
