Groundfish

The Council manages a diverse array of species under the Groundfish FMP including more than 65 rockfish species, flatfish like petrale sole and Dover sole, and roundfish like sablefish and Pacific whiting (hake). Most groundfish are caught with trawl and longline gear with small amounts caught by other kinds of hook-and-line gear.
