IPHC Meets Jan 14-18

The IPHC will be meeting January 14-18, 2008 to determine the 2008 catch limits and season starting dates.  We will post the information as soon as they announce it.  The IPHC staff is recommending moving to a coastwise model after a scientific peer review and thoroughly answering questions raised last year when they recommended the new model.  The State of Alaska is supporting the change in the model as the best available science.  The State of Alaska also came out against the proposal requiring VMS and suggests that if IPHC believes that VMS is necessary to contact the appropriate regulatory body (in Alaska the NPFMC) in each country.
