After standing down for the last three weeks, the Bering Sea cod trawl fleet is set to resume fishing this Sunday.
Abby Duffy is a fisherman on the F/V Miss Leona. She said the fleet stepped back voluntarily due to high bycatch numbers.
"January 20, the season opened, and we did start fishing," said Duffy. "The whole fleet went out and everybody got one trip. They were seeing — on some of the bigger, other boats — a lot of halibut bycatch."
