    Sounds like the trawlers had a record bycatch of halibut this year too. Can't stop them, they feed the world.

        a 26" fish might weigh 5lbs whole, you're looking at 2lb of meat maybe.

          Yeah. My opinion is let those fish live. But it’s a complex issue for sure. Personally feel the charters are getting the shaft because of the longliners targeting females.

            ""The Council also instructed the Charter Halibut Management Committee’s 3A representatives to convene a public teleconference meeting prior to the Jan/Feb 2020 Council meeting and the IPHC’s February 2020 Annual Meeting at which they will make recommendations on management measures that could achieve a 1.24 million pound harvest. The timing of that meeting and instructions for public accessibility will be noticed in the Federal Register and publicized on the NPFMC website in the coming weeks."

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

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

                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.

                      Interesting analysis here, but what will the charter operators committee recommend?

                            In Southcentral, the council took a similar tiered approach. The allocation levels are larger in general in Southcentral, but so is participation. Regardless of the allocation, the recommendations include an annual limit of four halibut per charter angler, closed Wednesdays, one trip per halibut charter vessel per day, and one trip per permit per day.
                            If the allocation is between about 1.7 million and 2 million pounds, the daily bag limit would be set at two halibut, with one fish of any size and the other smaller than 26 inches, with some Tuesdays closed.
                            At an allocation of between 1.588 million and 1.695 million pounds, the bag and size limits would be the same, but all Tuesdays would close and some Thursdays would close until the allocation is achieved. Below that, all Tuesdays would be closed with a daily bag limit of one halibut and a reverse slot limit, with an upper limit of 80 inches and a lower limit beginning at 58 inches.

                              i am sure if i read into it more i would find out but when do they come up with the allocation for the year. reason i ask is my buddies are coming up and are going on a halibut trip on a thursday in august. If it dosent come out until may i would tell them to try to change it to friday so they will have a halibut trip for sure instead of a rock fish/salmon trip.
