Halibut & Sablefish Regulations to be published and season to Start March 11

WE just received the following information that the Halibut/Sablefish regulations were approved today and will be published in the Federal Register within the next week. Publishing the final rule to set the halibut quota is always a bit tricky because it has to go through both the State and Commerce departments.
The 2017 permits are in the mail.
Sablefish pots will be effective on March 11 at the start of the season. Here is the notice with the revised effective date.
