Washington: DFW Seeks Input on Halibut Season

October 28 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is hosting a public webinar to discuss season structure and proposed dates for the 2021 sport halibut season.
The public is invited to participate in a virtual meeting scheduled  9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28. Meeting details and instructions for tuning in are available at https://wdfw.wa.gov/fishing/regulations/halibut.
Washington stakeholders will have an opportunity to provide input once staff present PFMC results at the meeting in October. In addition to refining the options developed in an earlier meeting, WDFW staff will collect further public input, review tide calendars for next spring, and select specific season dates that attempt to balance needs across various non-tribal fishing communities and charter and private fishing interests. WDFW staff will consider this input and submit a preferred option for the PFMC to consider for final action at its November meeting. The meeting is currently scheduled as an in-person meeting in Garden Grove, California, Nov. 13-20, 2020.
In addition to providing input to WDFW, stakeholders can also provide public comment to PFMC, see the PFMC webpage for more information https://www.pcouncil.org/.
