About that vote to increase the GOA king salmon bycatch cap...
"Balsiger's enthusiasm over the final package — he called it a "fabulous step" — was a sharp contrast against Campbell's disappointment and raised a few eyebrows in the room because Balsiger's wife, Heather McCarty, has repeatedly lobbied the council on behalf of Kodiak processor Pacific Seafoods for the least restrictive cap possible."

Balsiger should immediately resign. He should have recused himself. Who can doubt the Council's corrupted condition with such behavior? Where is Eric Schwaab's leadership. Jane Lubchenko? So they approve of this kind of behavior by their caporegimes?
