Disqualified halibut charter operators sue feds

Charter Operators of Alaska, a Homer-based nonprofit, today sued the federal government in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.

The lawsuit seeks to undo new regulations limiting the number of halibut charter boats in Southeast Alaska (Area 2C) and Southcentral Alaska (Area 3A).

Here's a press release from Charter Operators of Alaska.

Looks like some remote lodges to me. Hard to regulate and even easier to advertise to high-paying clients.
