What constitutes a "yelloweye" according to Alaska DFG?
I had naively assumed that yellow/orange rockfish with yellow eye and a light horizontal stripe was a yelloweye. But I recently was on a tuna charter boat in San Diego and it had a rockfish poster on a wall. I was astonished to see at least 6-7 rockfish that looked exactly like a yelloweye were in fact a different species. That got me thinking, when DFG says 1 yelloweye per year, is it generic any orange rockfish with yellow eye and horizontal stripe or is it truly specific to "yelloweye" and other similar looking species do not count?
Is this why these anglers are able to keep more than 1 per day?
