Board backs off call for smelt ban, urges harvest limits

MADISON — The state Natural Resources Board eased up Tuesday on a plan to stop commercial smelt fishing on Green Bay and instead recommended strict harvest limits for the plummeting fish population.
The board passed a motion on a voice vote to drop the annual total commercial fishing quota from 351,993 pounds to 25,000 pounds for one year and then get a population update from the state Department of Natural Resources before it takes further action.
