BREAKING NEWS: 

Lummi Nation declares

State of Emergency 

 On  Saturday,  August  19,  2017,  the  Washington  State  Department  of  Fish  and  Wildlife  (WDFW) were  informed  of  a catastrophic  net  pen  failure  that  has  resulted  in  the  release  of  thousands  of Atlantic  salmon,  an  invasive  aquatic  species.    This  devastating  Atlantic  salmon  spill  occurred  at Cooke  Aquaculture’s  Cypress  Island  facility.    The  Atlantic  salmon  spill  has  the potential  to devastate native salmon stocks critical to the culture and the economy of the Lummi Nation.  The Lummi  Indian  Business  Council  (LIBC)  learned  of  the  spill  on  Monday,  August  21,  2017,  from our fishermen, and is directing all relevant departmentheads to take immediate action in an effort to  protect  native  fish  species.    Specifically,  the  LIBC  is  directing  the  General  Manager’s  (GMs) Office to work with the LIBC Treasurer, our Natural Resources Department, and our Fisheries and Natural Resources Commission to minimize the threat posed by these non-native fish
