Fox Island and Gig Harbor residents have ramped up their fight to keep the Nisqually Indian Tribe from taking over a former Navy facility on Carr Inlet, hoping to stall a federal land transfer past Tuesday’s deadline. The tribe wants to turn the former Navy acoustics lab and an adjacent pier into a headquarters for its commercial scuba diving business (Nisqually Aquatic Technologies) and a base for tribal fisheries law enforcement.
