no one wants smaller halibut sizes that's clear from the poll. So if we get less quota a shorter season is the only option. June/July/August should be preserved for all They are predicting reductions will be necessary for the next 3 years, By the time the actual numbers are released its usually too late to get consensus from what all the fishermen want. Yes it's possible that we could end up with the same as this year but it looks like if you read the stuff available that there will be a cut. I think we can all agree if they shut down halibut fishing mid july it would be very serious and people would be livid.
