    2 alternatives were proposed and published in the Fed. Register... 1 fish bag limit and a 2 fish bag limit with an annual limit (I think 3 or 4)... comment period is closed now. The NPFMC is slated to take a bit of action at their April meeting, which I'm sure will stir more arguing. Also, remember the Feds can't discriminate between res and non-res... it's all guided and non-guided.

    I guess the short answer is no. Nothing is published and finalized yet. (Neither is the King Salmon abundance index out to determine preliminary King limits for res and non-res with the State.)
