Abstract

Despite efforts to manage it, the California barracuda, Sphyraena argentea, resource has exhibited a marked decline in abundance from levels exhibited prior to 1950. This paper presents a history of the California barracuda fisheries, a summary of its life history and population dynamics; and an evaluation of the resource under current management practices and recommendations for improvements in current management. Evaluation of the current status of the resource indicates its abundance off southern California is low but slowly improving with a marked improvement in size composition. Management recommendations, when adopted, should help increase the rate of recovery of the California barracuda resource. (73pp.)
