North of Falcon: Complex fishing adventure story

Boy and salmon

    “North of Falcon” might sound like the title of a Hardy Boys adventure novel, but it is the key to real-life adventures for thousands of real people who fish in Pacific Northwest maritime and coastal waters.

    The 2013 North of Falcon rule-setting process was concluded last week at the Pacific Fishery Management Council’s (PFMC) meeting in Portland. Council members conduct weeks of meetings leading up to this decision each year, with PFMC staff putting in much additional preparation time. Interested parties avidly monitor the entire process.
