Cooke Aquaculture wants to use its fish farming pens off the southern coast of Bainbridge Island to raise rainbow trout. Officials with the Washington Department of Ecology said yesterday that Cooke has submitted applications to the state requesting modifications to its existing water quality permits for its Bainbridge operation and three other net pens in Puget Sound.
The Department of Ecology will be accepting public comments on the proposal online through May 22.
Stand by for a call to action.
