Description

Alaska’s recreational anglers catch a lot of halibut each year and release nearly half of them. Up to six percent of the released fish die of stress and injuries. This brochure clearly presents techniques for gentle handling of halibut to minimize injury, from making expedient decisions whether to release, to where and how to remove the hook, to protecting the fish during handling. Working together we can ensure that Alaska’s halibut remain abundant.
