Halibut Season Opens

The 2010 season for halibut opened on Saturday and despite a nasty blizzard that kept most boats in port, Homer stayed true to its reputation as “halibut capital of the world” by taking in the first large load of the year. A whopping 42,500 pounds of flatfish was offloaded in Homer Saturday from the Kodiak-based F/V Jenoah and was auctioned online Tuesday by Auction Block Seafood.
