2019 Alaska Halibut Regulations
Updated: May 17, 2019
As Alaska's fisheries take on more fisherman every year, to help balance and conserve, regulations are placed for anglers seeking to fish on Halibut charters. Every season, the ACA travels to the IPHC annual meetings to represent the charter fleet. Their ultimate goal is to help protect the fishing opportunities for charters and you as the angler! While there were many predictions on this seasons regulations being set, the ACA came back with a win of gaining back an additional day and thus, giving anglers visiting Alaska more opportunity to fish!
As regulations change annually, our 2019 regulations are posted below for review.
