Keeping Prohibited Fish

     WASHINGTON (CN) – The National Marine Fisheries Service has raised the amount of groundfish that fishing boats may keep on board while in the arrowtooth flounder fishery of the Gulf of Alaska, even though it is against regulations to fish for them.
This rule allows boats to keep a percentage of certain groundfish, as compared to arrowtooth, that they claim they were not trying to catch, so they can sell them if they are marketable.
