Abstract
Conservation measures for the Pacific halibut fishery originally were incorporated in the Canadian-United States Convention of 1923. This Convention, that established the Halibut Commission, included only two regulatory controls, one for a closed season in the winter, the other pertaining to incidentally-caught halibut. The Convention of 1930 and subsequent revisions in 1937 and 1953 gave the Commission broader authority and specified other types of regulatory measures that could be used in the management of the fishery. Under these directives, regulations for the fishery were first published as a separate document in 1932. When broader authority was granted and the necessity for improving the statistical data base became apparent, the regulatory measures increased in number and complexity. The description of the licensing system, statistical reporting, and regulations concerning the incidental catch of halibut such as the "permit fishery" were particularly involved and accounted for nearly one-fourth of the text in the regulation document. After 1970, the language was Simplified and specific restrictions were eliminated. The regulations during the past five decades reflect the changes in the condition of the resource, the fishery, and its enforcement, as well as changes in the Convention and its interpretations. The chronology of the different regulatory measures and their rationale are reviewed in this report.
