Recreational spot shrimp fishing will reopen in Marine Area 11 and most of Marine Area 10 for one day on Wednesday.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife announced the opening, saying sufficient recreational spot shrimp quota remains in the waters off Tacoma and central Puget Sound for one more day of fishing

The exception in Marine Area 10 is Elliott Bay, defined as all waters east of a line from West Point to Alki Point. The Elliott Bay portion of Marine Area 10 has a separate spot shrimp quota, and the quota has been reached in that area.
Shrimping will be allowed from 7 a.m.-3 p.m.

On last week’s shrimp openers, several Puget Sound fishing areas experienced a 30 percent increase in participation over the previous season, so at this point it is unlikely that other central Puget Sound areas will reopen, said a department news release.
