As we near the 223rd Plenary Session of the North Pacific Fishery Management (NPFMC) meeting in June/Sitka, we have been pleased to see the outpouring of support for the Amendment 80 fleet with respect to the Halibut Bycatch Reductions that are up for Final Action (Agenda item C-2).
We recognize Unalaska Mayor Shirley Marquardt and Fisheries/Natural Resources Analyst Frank Kelty for their support; Dutch Harbor is our primary port of operations throughout the year.
