The International Pacific Halibut Commission has posted proposals for this year's catch limits.
Of particular note is a proposal from a group of fishing associations and processors who say, in part: "Reductions in Area 2C catch limits are not justified by current data or trends."
Area 2C encompasses Southeast Alaska.
Read the full proposal here.
The commission will consider the proposals and set the year's catch limits at its annual meeting Jan. 23-27 in Victoria, British Columbia.
