SAVE YOUR BUT! The CSP would set a dangerous precedent.
The catch Sharing plan will take your second halibut and offer to lease it back to the highest bidder.
The proposed CSP will give guided anglers up to 30% less allocation
than the status quo GHL, which a federal judge has ruled to be a "fair
and equitable" allocation. Why would guided anglers wish to settle for
anything less than what they have now for no conservation reason? The
CSP does not address conservation, but reallocates fishery resources
from the recreational sector to the commercial sector and then
provides a GAF program that authorizes commercial fishermen the
ability to lease these fish back.
