IPHC's Leaman: Halibut stocks to rebound

SITKA, ALASKA Pacific halibut stocks are low right now, the commercial quota and sport harvest guidelines have been cut, but the outlook for the species is promising.
That’s according to Bruce Leaman, the director of the International Pacific Halibut Commission, the scientific and regulatory body which keeps watch over halibut numbers.
Leaman was in Sitka this week (6-25-08) to work with his port sampler, and to meet with halibut fishermen as they landed their catch at local processors.
He stopped by KCAW to talk with Robert Woolsey about the IPHC’s involvement in the charter bag-limit lawsuit, and other important halibut issuesh.
