Re: Recreational Quota Entity (RQE)

Dear Chairman Hull,

1. Introduction: Who you are.
Provide information about yourself (name of your business, number of employees, type of clients you have, where you are located, how long have you been in business, etc.).

2. Problems you are having with current halibut regulations.

Have these regulations affected your business and clients? How? Explain it like they are five years old, with specific examples and stories, how these new rules have (or rather, have not) worked for you, your clients and your business:

Area 3A:

a. Annual limits?

b. Weekly closures?

c. 2nd fish “minnow rule”?

d. What about even more restrictions?

Area 2C:

a. Reverse slot limit?

b. One fish?

3. The RQE (Recreational Quota Entity) will provide a market-based, willing seller and willing buyer, tool by which commercial IFQ can be purchased to add to guided angler allocations — thereby decreasing the pain of strict harvest rules during times of low abundance. How will this improve conditions for your business, clients, and the resource? How will more allocation improve the success of your business? And the other businesses dependent on guided anglers in Alaska?

4. Closing.

Thank Council for their work and encourage them to pass the RQE into regulation.
