The International Pacific Halibut Commission has proposed a one halibut limit for parts of the summer for charter boat anglers in southeast and southcentral Alaska. The proposal is a response to growing charter fleet catches which in 2006 exceeded the limit set for the fleet.
The Anchorage Daily News reported: "The international panel that manages Pacific halibut will decide this week whether to enforce new one-fish bag limits this summer for Southeast and Southcentral Alaska charter boat anglers.
The current bag limit for charter clients is two halibut per day.
The International Pacific Halibut Commission's staff members suggested the proposal. It's just the latest in a series of attempts to keep the growing halibut charter fleet from exceeding its annual harvest limits in Southeast and Southcentral."
