Abstract

Statewide Pacific ocean shrimp, Pandalus jordani, landings totaled 3,400,191 lb, down from the 1975 record catch of 4,992,233 lb but well above the 10-year (1966-1975) mean of 2.6 million lb. Landings from Areas A (Eureka-Crescent City) and B-1 (Fort Bragg) were 2.7 and 0.7 million lb, respectively. Only negligible amounts were landed in Areas B-2 (Bodega Bay) and C (Avila-Morro Bay). In Areas A and B-1 catch per hour trawled by single-rig vessels ranged from 294 to 1,803 lb while catch per hour by double-rig vessels ranged from 431 to 3,428 lb. Two-year-old (1974 year class) shrimp dominated the catches during the first part of the season, but 1-year-old (1975 year class) shrimp dominated the catches from August to October. The outlook for the 1977 season in Areas A, B-1 and B-2 is good because of the strong showing of the 1975 year class. (15pp.)
