Keeping it friendly on the water

Anglers, harvesters encouraged to follow the rules, keep it courteous during busy summer season in Puget Sound

Everett is a popular destination for anglers, shellfish harvesters, and boaters looking to get on the water during the summer.

Know the rules, have the right gear

Lost or derelict shellfishing pots recovered from Puget Sound waters on days closed to crabbing/shrimping. All recreational buoys must have the full name and mailing address written legibly on the buoy — this helps get lost or abandoned gear back to its proper owner.
