Pollock down, cod up

The North Pacific Fishery Management Council this week set the 2022 total allowable catch for Alaska groundfish, and the news is mixed.

Most notably, the Eastern Bering Sea pollock TAC is down 19 percent to 1,111,000 metric tons.

In the Gulf of Alaska, the Pacific cod TAC is up 39 percent to 24,111 tons.

A few years ago there was a cod collapse in the GOA, now they are jacking up the catch limits. Pardon me for questioning the decision making here.
