The International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), originally called
the International Fisheries Commission, was established in 1923 by a
Convention between the governments of Canada and the United States of
America. Its mandate is research on and management of the stocks of
Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) within the Convention waters of both nations.
