Anglers invited to comment on proposed changes to 2010 sport halibut season

 
October 1 , 2009

 

NEWPORT – Sport anglers who target Pacific halibut have an opportunity to comment on proposed changes to the 2010 halibut season by phone or email.

“The Pacific Fishery Management Council adopted one proposed change for anglers to provide input,” said Gway Rogers-Kirchner who is the assistant program manager responsible for commercial and sport marine fisheries for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Under consideration is adjusting the Central Oregon summer fishery from the current three day openers to two days. Anglers are encouraged to comment on whether they prefer three days or two days per opener. Also, if the openers were structured for two days, would they prefer Friday and Saturday or Saturday and Sunday as open days.

The progress in this years Pacific halibut management can be viewed at: http://www.dfw.state.or.us/MRP/finfish/halibut/management/index.asp

“We will take the comments from the anglers to the Pacific Fishery Management Council at their meeting in November where they will adopt recommendations for changes to the Catch-Sharing Plan,” Kirchner said.

To provide comments, please contact Kirchner at (541)-867-4741 or Gway.R.Kirchner@state.or.us.
