From 1 April through 30 June, 1976, Department
personnel made 146 trips aboard southern California
partyboats. A total of 18,218 fishes from 76 species
was identified and measured.
Otoliths were removed from 674 rockfish carcasses
for use in age determination studies.
The 10 most common species sampled during this
quarter represented 85.2% of the total number of fishes
measured. These were, in order of importance: bocaccio,
Sebastes paucispinis; kelp bass, Paralabrax clathratus;
Pacific bonito, Sarda chiliensis; barred sand bass,
Paralabrax nebulifer; chilipepper, Sebastes goodei;
California barracuda, Sphyraena argentea; olive rockfish;
Sebastes serranoides; white croaker, Genyonemus lineatus;
ocean whitefish, Caulolatilus princeps; and vermilion
rockfish, Sebastes miniatus.
Pacific bonito and California barracuda partyboat
landings exceeded those of the entire 1975 season, and
sampling data indicate the average length of barracuda
caught from partyboats was significantly larger than
that of the previous season. (15pp.)
