The International Pacific Halibut Commission reports that the total catch limit for the Area 2A non-treaty directed commercial fishery has been reached following the July 20 fishing period. Therefore, the Area 2A non-treaty directed commercial halibut fishery is closed for the remainder of 2016.
Due to the short notice, this notification is posted to our website only, and no paper copy mailed.
