Bill's Lobster...fact check. (moved from Ontario board)

I was in Bill's the other day, and looking at their Halibut. I noticed that it was Atlantic Halibut, which has been indentified as an overfished species. DOn't want to be all preachy, but I'm trying to make better seafood purchase choices, so I shared my concern and they told me that the fish they sell is by-catch, meaning that if it wasn't consumed, it would just go to waste, which is obviously a bad thing. Does this explanation sense? Something about the quickness of the response set off my BS detector.

I like Bill's, mainly for the convenience and the quality of their crustaceans (fish is above average). But I find the lady to be pushy. And now I'm concerned about their honesty. I don't want to complain about what they sell, that's not the point of my post. I just want to know if they're feeding me a line of BS.
