Species:

Location: 
Reef Island, Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwai'i), British Columbia, Canada
Date Caught: 
Friday, May 4, 1984
Notes: 
Delicious! We observed commercial halibut long-line fishers discarding thousands of blown up and dead Yelloweye and other rockfishes near Reef Island in the 1980s - not surprisingly rockfish populations have been decimated and most Sebastes spp. are up for listing as threatened in British Columbia.
