New Information for Halibut Fishers
NEW FOR 2017, all BBEDC halibut fishers will receive a Hobo Temperature Logger and are required to attach the device to the longline gear when setting your skates. Once the halibut season is over, fishers must return the Hobo Temperature Logger with their undersized halibut report and logbooks. This is part of an ongoing effort to monitor water temperature changes within the Bristol Bay region.
Area 4E CDQ halibut applications are available soon after the first of the year, and must be completed and returned to BBEDC by April 1. Copies of all licenses and other required paperwork must be provided to BBEDC prior to the opening of the 4E CDQ halibut season May 1.
