IPHC Media Release 2021-008 IPHC Seeks Stakeholder Input that Characterizes the Economic Contribution of the Pacific Halibut Resource

16 February 2021

SEATTLE - In order to capture the economic impacts of Pacific halibut, the IPHC has designed a series of surveys to gather information from the sectors relying on this resource. Developing an accurate and representative Pacific halibut multiregional economic impact assessment (PHMEIA) model requires active participation of our stakeholders, who we ask for necessary data for analysis.

Active participants to the Pacific halibut fisheries (commercial, processing, and charter sector) can complete the following surveys for 2020, but also retrospectively submit information for 2019. The benefits of providing both year’s information are:

  • Data for 2019, covers pre-covid-19 operations, can be considered a baseline suitable for drawing conclusions under normal circumstances and used for predictions.
  • Data for 2020, covers an abnormal year of operations, can be used to assess losses incurred by the Pacific halibut sectors, but also sectors’ resilience to unfavorable circumstances.

Please fill in the IPHC economic survey by clicking the following links:
