The Every Halibut Counts project, a collaboration between AMCC, Alaska Sea Grant, and charter boat operators is continuing efforts this summer to provide information on best practices for gently releasing sport-caught halibut. See what’s new below!
  • Hot off the Press: Check out this op-ed in the Homer Tribune  by project intern, Jona Hamson , a deckhand from Homer and intern for the Every Halibut Counts Project.

Every Halibut Counts
  • Get Involved: If you are a charter boat operator who practices careful release, make your sustainable practices known by adding your name to the list of Every Halibut Counts project supporters. You will receive a sticker and waterproof placard listing best practices to display on your boat and you can add the Every Halibut Counts logo to our website to let clients know about your best practices. Email sam@akmarine.org to add your name or for more information.
