One of my primary concerns regarding the impending halibut allocation meetings is these draggers that work in the shallow banks off of Barkley Sound. They seem to operate in 50-70 fathoms. When they come through, you can forget about coming back with your rods and reels as they will change a productive Halibut hole to a lifeless wasteland in a matter of a few passes with those big nets. Where do these draggers fit in to the picture? How much of a role does their indiscriminate fishing practice on our shallow halibut banks effect the current halibut situation?
