Leaman optimistic for increased SE halibut harvests

SITKA, ALASKA Scientists with the International Pacific Halibut Commission are confident that a new strategy for counting halibut will improve the outlook for both the fish and the fishermen in Southeast Alaska.
Dr. Bruce Leaman, executive director of the IPHC, recently toured Southeast communities to talk with commercial and sport fishermen about new changes to the commission’s survey methods, and what those changes may mean for the future of halibut stocks.
