ODFW will be asking for public input on the upcoming spring halibut season for the central Oregon coast at a meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 30 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the ODFW Marine Resources Program conference room, 2040 SE Marine Science Dr., Newport.
ODFW staff will give an overview of the results of the International Pacific Halibut Commission Annual meeting and the resulting quotas. Then meeting participants will be able to provide input on the number and timing of “fixed” and “backup” dates for the Central Oregon Coast Subarea (Cape Falcon to Humbug Mountain) spring all-depth halibut season.
People who cannot attend the meeting in person can still participate in one of two ways:
- Join the meeting via GoToMeeting (see details below).
- Complete an online survey, which will be posted on the ODFW halibut webpage. (Both the online survey and background materials for the meeting will be posted by mid-afternoon on Monday, Jan. 29 on the ODFW halibut webpage dfw.state.or.us/MRP/finfish/halibut/index.asp.
- Anglers may also provide input by contacting Lynn Mattes (email@example.com) or Christian Heath (Christian.firstname.lastname@example.org) at the ODFW Marine Resources Program, (541) 867-4741.
