IPHC staff recommendations for 2012 were presented today on a webinar.
This is a recommendation of 7,935,000 pounds less than 2011 harvest limits. Staff also put on the table that they are considering major changes to the harvest rates/policy for 2013. They showed a slide that would have shown what the staff recommendations would have been with the policy changes they are considering that would be significantly less than the recommendations made.
(Area 2 B (Canada) catch limit includes all recreational harvest limits)
