Sport Groundfish Estimates - Select Species

  • 2018 quota used through JUNE 3 (preliminary) (pdf) (1 page)

  • Estimates by species or species group, 2018 through JUNE 3 (preliminary) and the two prior years, monthly and cumulative (pdf) (3 pages)

We calculate estimates by statistical month, so, for example, if June 1-3 are on Friday-Sunday, then estimates from those days fall into the statistical month of May (not June) because the majority of days that week (Monday-Thursday, or May 28-31) fell into the calendar month of May.


Estimates of fishery impacts are calculated differently depending on whether the quota is a state quota or a federal quota.

State sport quotas are used for greenlings and the "minor nearshore rockfish" group. Impacts consist of estimated landings taken by the ocean boat sport fishery.

Federal sport quotas are used for yelloweye rockfish, canary rockfish, black rockfish and cabezon. Impacts consist of estimated landings and other fishery-related mortality in the sport fishery.

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 may be made to sport fishing regulations in order to slow or stop fishing-related impacts on that species or species group.
