NFPMC Observer Program Analysis Now Available

The initial review analysis for restructuring the observer program is now posted on the Council webpage.  All the alternatives include the sablefish and halibut fisheries.  Letters to the NPFMC on the analysis are due by June 1st or you can attend the NPFMC meeting in Sitka and testify in person.  We are still reading through the analysis.  It looks likely that halibut and sablefish fishermen will be charged a 1% ex vessel value to pay for the program and in addition the processor would be liable for another 1% fee.
