Council said to pass Gulf Chinook bycatch limit

Deckboss has been remiss in failing to note that the North Pacific Fishery Management Council has been meeting the past several days in Nome.

It's the first time the council has ever convened in that exciting and faraway town.

And the council, evidently, has used the occasion to achieve yet another first: a limit on Chinook salmon bycatch in the Gulf of Alaska pollock fishery, says this press release from the Alaska Marine Conservation Council.
