Suquamish Tribe Loses Preliminary Injunction in Bangor Construction

“The Tribe filed a lawsuit in Washington Western District Court Aug. 27 against the U.S. Navy, Army Corps of Engineers and the National Marine Fisheries Service, stating the Navy did not acknowledge Suquamish’s fishing rights in the Hood Canal when it was left out of the project’s mitigation agreements.

According to a 1985 court case, Suquamish has secondary fishing rights in the canal, and can fish there upon invitation by the Skokomish Tribe.”
