Pacific Halibut 

Most Pacific Halibut is caught with bottom long-lines that
cause little habitat damage and have low levels of incidental
catch. The Pacific Halibut fisheries of Alaska, British Columbia
and Washington are certified as sustainable to the standard
of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC).

The Russian catch currently is not certified as an MSC fishery.
Pacific Halibut, a bottom-dwelling groundfish, is primarily
found in the coastal North Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea.

Pacific Halibut are caught also by way of "bottom gill-net" -
employed in Russian fishing grounds. Long-line fishing
method causes little habitat damage or by-catch.

The International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC)
manages Pacific Halibut in Alaska. Each year, the IPHC
conducts a population assessment and reviews indepen-
dent assessments to set annual catch limits. These limits
are allocated among licensed fishing vessels, giving each
boat a prescribed percentage of the total. This process has
resulted in longer fishing seasons, while keeping the
population healthy and abundant.

Pacific Halibut from the U.S. are listed as a "Best Choice"
on the Monterey Bay Aquarium Guide.






Fisheries managers adopted an individual fishing quota
(IFQ) program for the Alaska commercial long-line fishery in
1995 (Canada implemented a similar program in 1991).
This program allocates a set quota of the allowed harvest
to individual fishermen, allowing them the flexibility to
harvest their quota within a longer season.

This program extended the fishing season to almost 9 months,
increasing the value, safety, and efficiency of the fishery.
Consumers can now enjoy fresh halibut nearly year-round.

This fishery is considered to be among the best-managed
sustainable fisheries in the world.
