PETERSBURG-AK With the 2011 commercial Halibut season underway this month, the Director of the International Pacific Halibut Commission has been visiting Southeast Alaska to observe landings and speak with harvesters. Director Bruce Leaman has faced plenty of questions since the Commission’s January meeting which resulted in another year of huge cuts for the commercial longline fleet as well as a new size restriction for halibut landed on charter boats.
Reporter Matt Lichtenstein sat in while Leaman met with fishermen in Petersburg this week.
