Who’s Wasting Alaska Halibut? Not only are commercial fishermen allowed to catch the most Halibut, but they waste more than the combined catch of other responsible fishermen. As most know, Alaska has the best Halibut fishing in the world and is a very important resource to this great state and the Alaska fishing industry. However, every year, millions of pounds of Alaska Halibut are wasted in commercial fisheries. The irresponsible fishing of Commercial fisherman is the issue that should be addressed when it comes to Halibut conservation. Responsible fishermen like the Alaska charter fishing industry or sport fishing are suffering because of the millions of pounds of waste each year by Commercial fishing. We wanted to help others visualize the amount of wasted Halibut that ends up rotting away in the ocean each year so we did some research and compiled the data into this infographic below.
