The Atlantic salmon that were spilled into Puget Sound in a major net-pen farm escape at Cypress Island in August appear to be gone, with the fish not turning up in stream surveys by state biologists or in fall fisheries.

“Most people here presume they are dead and gone,” said Tony Meyer, spokesman for the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, representing the treaty tribes of western Washington. “They were not feeding or anything; they were not going to make it.

“They scattered everywhere, one showed up a few weeks ago, that is about it. They are just not turning up and they are not expected to.”
