Value of Halibut
There is a lot at stake when dealing with the Halibut issue in the Bering Sea. For every pound of halibut there is a 1:12 ratio between Halibut directed Fishery and the Amendment 80 fleet.
Further, and most importantly, the Amendment 80 numbers are verified by Federal Fisheries Observers; there are no observers on halibut directed fishery vessels.
Finally, don't let the halibut biomass anomoly punish a fleet "that has done everything right, in terms of bycatch reduction, reducing habitat impact, and cooperative fishing."
A fleet that supports the Coastal communities of:
- Unalaska/Dutch Harbor (year round)
- St.Paul/St.George Islands
- Togiak (we're currently fishing here)
- Sand Point
Spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a weekly basis in these ports and helping reduce the trade deficit.
