KENAI, Alaska (AP) - Regulators are considering reducing the amount of halibut that fishermen are allowed to catch along the Pacific coast next year.

The Peninsula Clarion reports the International Pacific Halibut Commission may adopt a 24 percent reduction to the annual halibut quota for fisheries from Alaska to California.

In a report presented to the intergovernmental organization at its meeting last month, the reduction was recommended due to low recruitment rates among young halibut populations over the last decade and increasing pressure on the fish stocks.
