Ok here is an idea and you can go ahead and shoot it full of holes but i have been thinking about it for a while. Right now com fish gets 88% of the halibut or there about. Why not put a surcharge on NR fishing license? 2.00 for a one day, 5.00 for a week, 10.00 for a 2 week and 25.00 for a yearly. Take that money and buy up comfish IFQ's when they become available. Add that allocation to the sport fish allowable catch as sport fish is paying for it. No one would be forced out of the com fish industry as no one would be forced to sell, sport fish would have more fish to catch. Prices would go up for com fish still fishing due to fewer fish going to market. As a NR angler i would not mind a bit if i paid more as a contribution to the state and people of AK. Maybe not a great idea but why not?
