The Story of Reef Netting
Caught just north of the SeaBear Smokehouse, the little-known method called reef netting is a centuries-old method of salmon fishing, first practiced by Native Americans using cedar canoes (it is believed to be the oldest net fishing method in the world). Today, reef netting is quite rare (there are only 11 licensed reef netters in the world, all located in the waters of north Puget Sound, and often handed down within families). To fish, a “reef” is created, using lines and flags strung between two floating, stationary platforms (in reef netting, the gear is stationary and the fish swim to it). As the flood tide runs, salmon swim into this “reef”, which ultimately channels them between the two platforms and over the netting.
