    LET SFAB know your thoughts below!

    For 2018, the SFAB is considering various management options they may recommend to DFO. These options include considering changes to:
    • Minimum and Maximum size limits
    • Individual annual limits
    • Daily and total possession limits
    • Season length • Time and area closures

    *This poll was not officially sanctioned by the SFAB but merely taken from page 5 of this report:

    Most of these are already in place. I think maybe like a 1/1 no size, 50lb / 12lb, etc type poll is better? From old math those are almost only two options available. Although maybe 60/12 but with new math that may not.

    My vote would be 1/1. 12lb is hard to find and release more than I would looking for 12lber than for one 30lber

    I think everyone voting is smart enough to assuming the options are about restricting it further. I thought about doing what you said but it turned into to many options. Just Vote for what you would like to see reviews or restricted more.

    Or if its not listed note it below like you have done.

    Do you mean what further measures we would like to see in each category ?
    If so, "none of the above "for me as everything you select will further impact an
    already dwindling season.

    Also vote for 22-25% or allocation so we can get more restrictions lifted.

    Let’s start with exactly how much our allocation is.
    No one seems to have the answer?

    Do you mean for this year because the report you posted says "Recreational Allocation (15% of Canadian TAC)"

    Agree with you. It just feels like a waste to bonk a 10lb Halibut.

    While DFO staff have not provided us with an official TAC number yet, it is some where around 928, 677 lbs as a conservative estimate. The actual number is likely to be higher than this, but not by much.

    I seem to have read that there is still a disagreement and this still needs to be resolved?

    Sorry gents if my question was answered in a different post. What is the schedule for DFO to come out with 2018 info?

    I believe the disagreement was between Canada & our southern neighbor... only agreement made was that reductions are needed. Each area will reduce as the see fit.. (at least that's what I understand)

    Sounds like by catch from the Alaska troll fleet is not to be talked about.

    I did not include the TAC option because that is well know that every recreational angler wants more TAC. This poll focus on what was mention in the report.

    OK, so this poll is being sanctioned by SFAB and will be part of their management process?

    wildmanyeah Well-Known Member

    hell know, but at least we will all be on record.

    I'll put a disclaimer in

    How about a check box to get rid of the "experimental" :rolleyes: halibut quota purchase scheme? That should be brought up.
