October's Dirty Dozen +2 Trawlers

Halibut continue to suffer under trawling. Stocks are unlikely to recover until unrestrained halibut bycatch is eliminated.

Halibut bycatch is measured in kilograms per metric ton of targeted species. Notice that two of these dirty trawlers are "midwater," so NMFS labels are not accurate but misleading descriptions.

80% of halibut bycatch is returned to the sea dead.

Keep yer flippers wet.
