Editorial: Suquamish Tribe doesn't have treaty right on its side
Posted: Tuesday, September 4, 2012
"When is a fishing right not a right to fish? Put another way, can you have a right and be wrong?
Those questions remain to be settled since the Suquamish Tribe sued the Navy and other federal agencies over construction of a $715 million explosives handling wharf at the Bangor naval submarine base.
Suquamish officials filed a lawsuit to block construction of the wharf on the grounds that the Navy and others are violating the tribe's treaty fishing rights in Hood Canal."
