PETERSBURG-AK Members of the region’s commercial fishing industry are not happy about an effort by the charter fleet to rework southeast Alaska halibut catch limits for the upcoming year. The charter fleet is asking the International Pacific Halibut Commission to change the way it calculates the projected 2008 charter catch. Both the commercial and charter sectors are facing major cuts to the amount of halibut they will allowed to catch as the commission meets this week (1/15/08)
