Sport groundfish estimates of select species

2020 preliminary estimates through APRIL (revised slightly on May 14)

Sport groundfish impacts are tracked by weight. One metric ton = 2,204.6 pounds.

When a sport groundfish quota is reached or is projected to be reached, inseason adjustments to sport fishing regulations may be made in order to slow or stop fishing-related impacts on that species or species group.

What's a statistical month?

Groundfish estimates are calculated by statistical month. In the example below, catches from July 29-31 belong to the statistical month of August (not July) because the majority of days that week (four days out of seven) are actual August days.

DOW  Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun
