IPHC proposes lower halibut harvest in '09

SITKA, ALASKA The International Pacific Halibut Commission has announced another significant reduction in the halibut harvest next year.
The cutback will be a heavy blow especially for commercial longliners in Southeast who’ve seen their quotas cut steadily over the last five years.
Lower halibut abundance in Southeast waters could also set the stage for another legal battle for charter halibut fishermen opposed to a reduction in the daily bag limit for their clients.
