AKRO: Guided Angler Fish Landings

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2021

Beginning in 2014, the the halibut Catch Sharing Plan (CSP) authorizes annual transfers of commercial halibut IFQ as guided angler fish (GAF) to charter halibut permit holders for harvest in the charter halibut fishery. GAF offers charter halibut permit holders in Area 2C or Area 3A an opportunity to lease a limited amount of IFQ from commercial quota share (QS) holders to allow charter clients to harvest halibut in addition to, or instead of, the halibut harvested under the daily bag limit for charter anglers. Charter anglers using GAF are subject to the harvest limits in place for unguided sport anglers in that area.

Information about GAF landings are submitted electronically through eFish, NMFS' integrated online system, and include details on when and where the GAF were caught, the number and length of fish, as well as permit, vessel, license, and logbook details.
