Alaska fishermen lose courtroom catch

#Alaska sport #fishermen seeking Pacific #Halibut lost an effort Friday to challenge an Obama administration rule limiting charter vessel access to the Gulf of Alaska.

In a 13-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth rejected bid by Charter Operators of Alaska and others to block the "limited access system." Judge Lamberth explained, in part, that:

"Merely highlighting the fact that the Final Rule will cause some charter operations to suffer adverse economic impacts is not sufficient for this Court to find the agency acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner."
