The article presents the subsidizing of commercial bottomfishing trips by the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands research. The subsidy is under the June 2006 presidential order giving the eight remaining federally permitted bottomfishers four more years to fish. The Northwestern bottomfishermen are to receive some compensation over the next year or so through four research grants. The assistance to Hawaiian-based fishermen affected by closures will be covered by the 5 million-dollar 2003 congressional appropriation.
