Integrated Groundfish Fisheries Management Plan
- To request a full-length version of the Integrated Groundfish Fisheries Management Plan or the Pacific Hake Manangement Plan please email one of the following fishery co-ordinators:
The Department has received feedback from recreational harvesters that the current opportunity for recreational halibut fishing is not sufficient for harvesters, and does not provide stability and certainty. This experimental program provides opportunity for recreational harvesters to retain halibut in excess of the size and daily/possession limits under the Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence. The experimental program will test the management measures and monitoring requirements of a market-based transfer mechanism.
