  • Limiting Long-Liners in Prince William Sound

    There are movements afoot in both Whittier and Cordova to begin regulating the activities of commercial Halibut fishermen with-in the confines of Prince William Sound. What do you guys think of that?

    And the reason behind this is?

    And the historical use of the area is by?

    And the economic impact would be?

    And the impact to the biomass has been?

    And the creators of this "movement" are?

    And their interests derive from?


    Sorry, a few more details would be nice to see unless this is entirely based on emotion.

    If I had to "off the cuff" this one I'd say it's yet another piss and moan from the mosquito fleet. PWS is limited entry for sable-fish, regulated for halibut via IFQ, not a hot bed for Grey Cod, and the rock-fish is undersized as opposed to the offshore reefs and sea-mounts.

    Seems there are already ample "limitations" in place there....

    How about a movement limiting the number of pleasure boats?

    Or a movement that any boats rented must be rented only to Alaska Residents who hold a minimum 6 pack license?

    Makes about as much sense. More, actually.

      I seem to agree on the limitations are already in place.

        Didn't really strike a nerve, insomuch that the ulterior motives behind this post are apparent, and abhorrent. Those involved want to attack one sectors income and livelihood? Expect a likewise response if that's the case...

            I can't believe I just did that. Now, did I stoop or did I rise? Aye, there's the rub.

                  Ok, sectors in the above quote is plural, "sectors" as you used it previously was possessive, right? Why doesn't the possessive use the apostrophe?

                    I think it is a great idea. The offlimits area should also extend offshore of the barrier islands.

                      How about there is a new reg made stating that there will be a per pound charge for every red salmon caught by a sportfishing boat in main bay?? a charge for every hatchery silver caught in the sound? a charge for every king caught around ester and whittier? and lets also throw in a permit fee to fish around the hatcheries? The sportfisherman DON'T PAY A DIME for those fish that are paid for by commercial fishermen to be raised and released. So lets not start a grab for the fisheries. I knew it would come some day "those are OUR halibut in the sound" and how dare those longliners want to catch them.

                          That's fairly accurate.

                          I knew it would come some day "those are OUR halibut in the sound" and how dare those longliners want to catch them.
                          Where are the halibut hatcheries located?

                            Come On

                            Pot builder are you telling me that out of 7.6 million dollars paid to sportfishing license last year, none of that money went to hatcheries?

                            I'm not saying they should limit the sound to L/L but lets keep this real. Both sides contribute plenty of dollars for the fisheries.

                              my boat has pulled enough sport snagged reds from main bay to justify paying a fee.
