Halibut Coalition Works with International Pacific Halibut Commission

For the past three years, Charles Clement has served as president and chief executive officer of Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium in Juneau, Alaska. Prior to this endeavor, he worked as vice president and chief operating officer for Southcentral Foundation in Anchorage. An outdoor enthusiast who enjoys hunting and fishing, Charles Clement belongs to the Halibut Coalition.

Based in Juneau, the Halibut Coalition aims to protect the sustainability of the Pacific halibut. It also promotes effective, informed management of the halibut fishery and allocates halibut among all areas in Alaska. To keep individuals informed of its goals, the organization hosts, sponsors, and works in conjunction with other organizations at events throughout the year.

One event in which the Halibut Coalition takes part is the International Pacific Halibut Commission’s annual meeting. The 2016 event, scheduled for January 25-29 at the Centennial Hall Convention Center in Juneau, marks the organization’s 92nd annual meeting. Presentations will cover the fishery, harvest decisions, and information pertaining to the 2015 stock assessment. The final day of the meeting will cover catch limits and regulations as approved by the commission. Those who cannot attend can view the open sessions via webcast.
