Some of Kodiak’s pot cod fishermen will be shifting gears in the coming week. The National Marine Fisheries Service announced that the Central Gulf of Alaska A-Season will be closed at noon today (Thursday).
Therefore, the Kodiak area state-waters p-cod pot gear season will open at noon next Thursday (Feb. 20).
The guideline harvest level for both pot and jig fishermen is 14.63-million pounds, with 7.32-million pounds set aside for pot sector. Of that, vessels greater than 58 feet overall are limited to 3.66 million pounds.
In an announcement from Fish and Game, vessel operators participating in the parallel fishery may store open and unbaited pots during the seven days between tomorrow and the opening of the state-waters season. Only 60 pots per boat may be fished in the state season.
