Deep-water species complex: sablefish, rockfish, deep-water flatfish, rex sole and arrowtooth flounder. Shallow-water species complex:  pollock, Pacific cod, shallow-water flatfish, flathead sole, Atka mackerel, and 'other species'.
From May 15 to June 30 NMFS manages on the combined 2nd season deep-water and shallow-water halibut mortality limit of 877 mt. 
This does not apply to sideboard PSC limits.
No apportionment between shallow-water and deep-water fishery complexes during October 1 to December 31 (277 mt allocated).
Other hook-and-line fisheries means all hook-and-line fisheries except sablefish and demersal shelf rockfish in the Southeast District.
Halibut mortality for the demersal shelf rockfish fishery in Southeast District is not listed due to insufficient observer coverage.
Data is based on observer reports extrapolated to total groundfish harvest. Estimates for all weeks may change due to incorporation of late or corrected data.
