Sport groundfish estimates of select species

2020 preliminary estimates through November

  • Quota used (1 page pdf)

  • Estimates by species or species group, monthly and cumulative, including the previous two years for comparison (4 pages pdf)

Estimates have been corrected to account for effort reductions due to coronavirus-related closures of boat ramps and other access points in several ports.

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 from 2020, catches from August 1-2 belong to the statistical month of July because the majority of days that week (Monday through Sunday) are in July.
