The plan states, "The Yurok Tribe requests the Commission to adopt option one based upon the following legal, factual and historical record submitted on behalf of the Yurok Tribe. Adoption would be for concurrence with the Yurok MLPA Marine Resources plan which provides for a non‐commercial non‐exclusive right of the Yurok Tribe to continue traditional, ceremonial, religious, and cultural harvesting as has been practiced continuously for 10,000 plus years or time immemorial."
