Homer in October: We Tell the North Council to Reduce By Catch.

The North Pacific Fishery Management Council meets in Homer, Alaska at Land's End Resort the first week of October.

Trawl by catch is on the agenda and the Alaska Charter Association is partnering with the North Pacific Fisheries Association and the Homer Charter Association to organize public comment.

We'll be there and would like to hear from any charter operators or halibut anglers who want to speak up on the issue of trawl by catch of Pacific halibut and salmon.

The North Council will have a block room rate available for attendees, at the Land's End Resort and Best Western Bidarka, where the Advisory Panel will meet. The Council and staff will be at Land's End.

Even if you can't make it, there will be opportunity for public comment in writing. The Council makes it easy to do online. The documents and agenda will be posted soon, and we'll let you know when that's available.

See you in Homer- for details about the meeting visit the North Pacific Fishery Management Council website for the meeting agenda, documents and online comment form.
