BLACK ROCKFISH CLOSURE IN THE NORTHEAST
DISTRICT OF THE KODIAK AREA


E.O. # 4-GF-05-12
The directed black rockfish jig fishery in the Northeast District of the Kodiak Area will close at
11:59 p.m. on Friday, March 9, 2012. Catch reports indicate total black rockfish harvest is
approaching the Northeast District guideline harvest level.
Following the closure, jig vessels may retain black rockfish in the Northeast District as bycatch,
up to 20 percent by weight of the target species onboard. All other gear types may retain black
rockfish as bycatch, up to 5 percent by weight of the target species onboard. Jig vessel operators
must contact ADF&G in Kodiak by phone or in person to change district registration.
For more information, contact the Alaska Department of Fish & Game in Kodiak at 486-1840.
