If you are into fishing, commercial or sport, you might want to read up on the math discussion and who is stonewalling the change to the by-catch.

The International Pacific Halibut Commission has recommended 2015 catch limits of 29.2 million pounds for the prized flat fish in U.S. and Canadian waters, a 6 percent increase from last year’s limits. Hal Bernton reports. (Seattle Times)
