Confederated Tribes and Bands of Yakima Indian Nation v. Baldrige, 605 F.Supp. 833 (D.C.Wash.,1985)


This stipulation was entered into by all parties to this proceeding for the purpose of defining a procedure and standards by which the parties agree to determine the allocation of certain chinook salmon resources between fisheries in and off the state of Alaska and fisheries in and off the states of Washington and Oregon through effective implementation of the U.S./Canada Pacific Salmon Treaty signed at Ottawa January 28, 1985. The parties to the stipulation are the United States, the states of Washington and Oregon, the twenty-four Indian tribes identified on the signature pages hereto whose fishing rights are secured by treaties entered into between the United States and the respective tribes in the mid-1850’s (Stevens and Palmer Treaties), and the State of Alaska.
