Title: ●Annual Management Measures for the 2020 Pacific Halibut Fisheries of the Northern Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea 

The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, on behalf of the International Pacific Halibut Commission, publishes annual regulations adopted as management measures by the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC).  The IPHC will recommend management measures for 2020 at its annual meeting in early February 2020, after which NMFS publishes regulations implementing these measures as soon as practicable.  These management measures include 2020 catch limits, opening and closing dates, and other management measures, such as size limits, gear restrictions, and recreational bag limits, for the Pacific halibut commercial and sport fisheries off the West coast and Alaska.  These measures are intended to enhance the conservation of Pacific halibut and further the goals and objectives of the North Pacific Fishery Management Council.
