Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute Broodstock Program [Photos + Video]

Hookup Baits as well as other private boats participated in the Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute Broodstock Program Thursday and Friday this week. Our goal was to collect Halibut for their program. The goal was to catch 20 male halibut of legal size.

The grand total from the two days was:

  • Males – 4
  • Females – 5
  • Unknown – 5 – A gonad sample was unable to be attained from these fish, we will try again in a few months!
  • Total – 14!!

All the fish are doing well in the tank after handling. Thanks, Chris Arechaederra, for the awesome recap video (below)!
