A loaded question, I admit. I say yes.
With ever tighter restrictions on halibut, a growing segment of the charter fleets are focusing more on rock fish to stay in business.
As currently regulated I don't believe rock fish can sustain focused charter pressure for long. (as well as increased pressure from private boats)
Shallower, closer to port, easier and cheaper to catch rock fish.
Generous bag limit, commercially untargeted rock fish.
Slow growing, easy to deplete rock fish.
Of course the BoF won't respond proactively. They'll wait until the fish are all but gone and then you won't be able to catch them for 20 years or so.
