Marine bag limit remains seven fish
January 4 , 2010


NEWPORT, Ore. – The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife wants to remind anglers that the marine fish daily bag limit remains seven fish in 2010. The reminder is prompted by an error in the 2010 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations that says the limit is six.

The marine fish bag includes rockfish and other species such as greenling and cabezon. The higher bag limit went into effect May 1, 2009 based on a favorable stock assessment for black rockfish, the dominant species in the nearshore groundfish fishery. There are separate daily limits for lingcod (two) and flatfish other than Pacific halibut (25). Yelloweye rockfish and canary rockfish may not be retained.

The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission adopted the seven fish limit into permanent regulations in April 2009. The error in the 2010 Oregon Sport Fishing Regulations booklet occurs on page 100 where is states the daily bag limit for marine fish (rockfish, greenling, Pacific cod, cabezon, skates and other species not listed on pages 100-101) is six fish in aggregate; it should be seven fish in aggregate.  The online version
