Enforcement

The Treaty Council has a long history of coordinating with both state enforcement personnel and tribal enforcement agencies to ensure compliance with fisheries and hunting regulations, which are either issued by the individual tribal offices or the Treaty Council office.

Members who violate regulations can be cited in tribal court where they can face penalties ranging from monetary fines and loss of fishing or hunting privileges to imprisonment.

The member tribes’ enforcement staff are responsible for 2,250 square miles of marine patrol area in Puget Sound, Hood Canal, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands, as well as 1,250 river miles, and the surrounding geography of the Treaty Area.
