Charter halibut IFQ.

Its time for fair treatment by the NPFMC of the charter halibut fishing fleet. Hundreds of established businesses and thousands of employees are at risk of losing there jobs because of the current management councils actions. The halibut IFQ system is the proven management tool for conservation of the resource and maintaining a viable businesses climate that depends on that healthy fish population. Inclusion into the IFQ management system is the only equitable solution to the halibut allocation issue.
