    Something is seriously wrong when there is more BYCATCH than actual catch.

    In other words be prepared for further cuts than the two days a week.

    What would 2 fish daily, both under 42 inches, do to the quota?

    The “under 26/28 inch” fish is a waste of time in my opinion, and I don’t keep them generally. But I don’t care to eat anything much over 40 pounds.

    Seems like charters keep getting the shaft. Sorry for the operators.

    That would probably double the current charter harvest. charter operators are taking the same percentage of reduction as longliners. Both groups are managed to abundance, which is low right now. The management measure are decided primarily by the charter halibut management committee, which is made up entirely of charter and lodge operators that fish for halibut. So while you may not like the measures, the members of this committee with plenty of input for industry decides what is the least difficult changes. These guys all do this at their own expenses. here is where to find out who is on the committee. Stop and thank them for their service if you know them, it is a crappy job.
