No Clem Tillion quotes here. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council has FINALLY, after how many years, adopted a "Comprehenisve Rationalization" (read "limited entry") plan for the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. I remember standing next to crab lobbyist Arnie Thompson of the Alaska Crab Coalition when the NPFMC gave a CDQ's a slice of the lucrative crab fishery. It's interesting that Council Chairman David Benton says nowhere in the story that the plan is good for the crabs!
