More cuts for Southeast halibut fishery

Southeast Alaska halibut fishermen will see a big cut to their catch this year. The International Pacific Halibut Commission this week went with its staff recommendations for a 27 percent reduction in the regions commercial quota. That follows last year’s 20 percent cut. This years lower harvest target will also affect the Southeast halibut charter fleet.
