Sport Groundfish

Beginning Jan. 1, 2017, descending devices are mandatory.

Any vessel fishing for, or possessing, bottomfish (groundfish) in the ocean must have a functional descending device onboard, and the device must be used when releasing any rockfish outside of 30 fathoms. A functional descending device is one that is ready to be used.

Also beginning Jan. 1, 2017:

The marine fish daily bag limit is seven fish in aggregate, of which no more than 6 may be black rockfish; no more than four may be one or a combination of blue, deacon, China, copper and quillback rockfish; and no more than one may be a cabezon (cabezon is open only July-December).

There is no longer a sub-bag limit for canary rockfish.

There is no longer a minimum length limit for greenlings (i.e., kelp greenling and rock greenling).
