because we (the members) want to set up a stocking program for halibut in SF Bay similar to the white Seabass program down south. The DF&G is opposed saying that there is little natural reproduction by halibut in the north; they say that reproduction occurs only during warm-water years and then you see an increase in numbers for a few years. To some of us that would seem to justify a stocking program even if it isn't "natural." To date our concerns have gone nowhere. My larger concern is that with the lack of salmon, decreased rockfish areas, and a possible decrease in stripers, the halibut are going to be hammered. There seem to be a lot of them right now but what about down the road? We can't stock stripers, we can't stock halibut, the salmon are missing, and new areas will be closed due to the MLPA. Where's the light at the end of the tunnel?
