The Pacific halibut fishery opens today, and all but West Coast harvesters have reduced catch limits for the 2023 season.

Total “removals” for all users were cut by 10.31% to 36.97 million pounds. That includes takes by commercial, sport, subsistence fishermen and halibut caught and discarded as bycatch in eight fishing regions that encompass California, Washington, Oregon, British Columbia and Alaska.
