Harvest Limit Progress (Year-to-Date)

Harvest limits are one tool used by fishery managers to limit the harvest of a species or species group to a particular level. The need to limit a harvest stems from one or more factors such as decreasing fish populations, escalating harvest, uncertainty about the sustainability of a fishery, and the need to share the harvest among fisheries or geographical areas. When a sport harvest limit is approached or reached, inseason adjustments may be made to sport fishing regulations in order to slow or stop the harvest of that species.

Click here for current sport groundfish regulations.

Note that accelerating toward or reaching the limit of one species may affect fishing opportunities for other species.

Harvest estimates for each month are posted at the end of the following month.

solid Attention!
Reaching the cap on one of these species or species groups may affect fishing for other species.


Prohibited Prohibited!
Retention of yelloweye rockfish and canary rockfish is prohibited.

    The Oregon recreational harvest guideline for yelloweye rockfish was reduced to 2.3 mt at the June 2010 Council meeting to comply with a court order to reduce total yelloweye impacts, coastwide, from 17 mt to 14 mt. The updated Federal Register can be found at:
