Commercial halibut fishers counter recreational industry suggestions

The commercial fleet of halibut fishers is seeking to turn back the efforts of the recreational industry, which would see the recreational fishery given a larger share of the halibut quota.

The suggestion that the commercial industry should lose its share to the recreational fishers isn't one that is a welcome suggestion and to that end the commercial industry has started with a letter writing campaign to reinforce to DFO the importance of their livelihoods.

The Northern View provides this examination of the controversy, posted online on Friday.
