Secretariat Locations

The IPHC Secretariat Staff are located in different locations along the North Pacific Coast. All IPHC headquarters personnel are located in Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.

There are also IPHC Fisheries Data Specialists stationed in key locations along the North Pacific Coast. Their main duties are to collect detailed and accurate fishing records from commercial fishermen; obtain biological data from commercial deliveries (collect random samples of Pacific halibut otoliths, tissue and corresponding fork length and weight measurements); conduct supplementary assignments associated with the gathering of biological or statistical data; and serve as the Commission's liaison to the public. These locations are only staffed during the commercial fishing season.

Below is a list of locations where IPHC Secretariat Staff are present. A detailed list and profiles of current staff members may be found here.
