Halibut/Sablefish |

IFQ News July 2019


Fishing reports remain positive in most areas.  Grounds prices continue to be stable but marginal.  Quota supply remains high with unfished still available.  Expect sales activity to increase in the fall.  


Information from the fishing grounds remains mixed. All accounts report an abundance of small fish. Overall, quota prices have stabilized. Blocked and unblocked quota is available in all areas. Rare buying opportunities exist in SE and WY and reduced asking prices in the Gulf of Alaska have resulted in some sales. We expect quota sale activity to stay steady through the fall.
