California anglers interested in the recreational Pacific halibut fishery are invited to provide input to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) via an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LHHYJXG.

The short survey, which will be open through Feb. 23, will help inform CDFW biologists about angler preferences for open fishing dates during the upcoming 2018 season. Results of the survey will be used to develop recommended season dates that will be provided to the National Marine Fisheries Service.

The Pacific halibut fishery takes place off the northern California coast. In 2017, the fishery was open May 1-June 15, July 1-15, Aug. 1-15 and Sept. 1-10. The fishery closed Sept. 11 due to projected attainment of the California quota.

For more information on the Pacific halibut fishery in California, please visit CDFW's Pacific Halibut web page at https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/conservation/marine/pacific-halibut.

I asked for a seperate opener for non-motorized craft from May 1 until quota met.

Can't hurt to ask.

Done.  I asked for status quo same season.  I also complained about them closing the season too early the last 2 years and leaving quota unfilled.  I also expressed that we need more representation at the IPHC to help get more quota since we have an abundance of Pacific halibut on the northern California coast according to the recent trawling surveys done.
