Alaska Rock Fishing

Yelloweye Rockfish also known as Red SnapperWhen you are out fishing for Halibut or Lingcod you have a good chance of catching one of these colorful fish. The Gulf of Alaska is home to about 32 rockfish species, but only 15 are common in the near shore shelf. Rockfish are more vulnerable to over harvest than other marine species, because (1) they are attracted to specific habitats and hence easily found and caught; (2) they mature late and do not reproduce until they are 7 to20 years old; (3) they produce few young (4) they do not often survive release.
