Halibut One Fish Bag Limit Lawsuit Dismissed

The NMFS this fall withdrew the final rule for the one fish bag limit and then asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit as being moot since the rule had been proposed.  The charter fleet contested the dismissal, but the court granted the dismissal without prejudice. 

It is expected that very soon the new one fish proposed rule will be published as a proposed rule with a 30 day comment period.
