Sport Groundfish Quota History

For simiplicity, the term "quota" is used in place of technical terms such as harvest limit, cap, guideline, etc. Only species or groups currently being tracked are shown below. Groundfish quotas are tracked by weight (metric tons) rather than by numbers of fish.

"Impacts" are landings or the sum of landings and other fishery-related mortality in the sport fishery.
