Species affected: Pacific halibut
Location: Marine Area 2
Reason for action: The Marine Area 2 recreational Pacific halibut quota set aside for the primary season was projected to have been taken at the end of the day Tuesday, May 12, 2015. Any quota remaining from the primary season will be added to a separate quota set aside for incidental halibut retention in the northern nearshore area and is sufficient to continue to allow halibut fishing seven days per week in that area. This rule conforms to federal action taken by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC).
