North Pacific council seeks more ideas for Bering Sea chum bycatch

Dec  8, 2012

The North Pacific Fishery Management Council worked on an initial review of  a chum salmon bycatch effort Dec. 7 and 8. The council’s agenda for this meeting includes two efforts to reduce bycatch – one targeting chum caught by Bering Sea pollock fleet, and the other targeting  Gulf of Alaska Chinooks. Today’s action was for the Bering Sea.
