What it boils down to is having volunteers who are most likely taking time off work and donating their time and effort with no other gain (like taking home by-catch), pay for the privilege of being there just seems off. They should at least have the opportunity to write off that 50 bucks as a donation.
Back when I was President of the San Diego Oceans Foundation we would obtain corporate grants to cover the cost of volunteers participating in efforts such as this.

I don't know - maybe I am getting old and crotchety...

Now get off my lawn!
Personally, I'm going because I like to fish, and halibut is a target I would eventually like to catch more of. If this research pans out like it did with the WSB, then it'll be halibut on the dinner table, eventually.
