In Alaska, protecting the future of both the halibut stocks and the environment takes priority over opportunities for commercial harvest. Halibut management in Alaska is a collaborative process, in which the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) assesses stocks and sets catch limits annually. From these limits, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) allocates quota to fishermen. For nearly 100 years, the IPHC has set sustainable catch limits to ensure wild Alaska Halibut are available in Alaska for generations to come.
