- NOAA Fisheries and the North Pacific Fishery Management Council manage the Greenland turbot fishery.
- Managed separately but similarly under the Fishery Management Plans for Groundfish in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands.
- Permits are required and the number of available permits is limited to control the amount of fishing.
- Managers determine how much turbot can be harvested and then set annual catch limits.
- Catch is monitored through record keeping, reporting requirements, and observer monitoring.
- Certain seasons and areas are closed to fishing due to habitat and other species considerations (e.g., king crab and Pacific halibut).
- In the Bering Sea, a percentage of the allowable catch is allocated to the community development quota program, which benefits fishery-dependent communities in western Alaska.
