Relative Distribution and Abundance of Halibut in the Northwestern Atlantic
Derived from the NEFSC Fall Bottom Trawl Surveys


This shows relative Halibut stock weight and location. Yellow circles indicate Halibut are present, larger circles indicate more Halibut , plus sign (+) indicates sampled area where no Halibut were found.

The information displayed here represents a timeseries collected consistently since 1963. The Northeast's resource survey constitutes the world's longest and most comprehensive standardized measure of distribution and abundance trends in commercially harvested finfish.
