Abstract

A 1-yr. study was undertaken to devise a sampling program which would determine fishing catch and effort levels of one segment of the southern California marine sport fishery. Personal interviews of fishermen were conducted at launch ramps, boat hoists, and boat rental locations from Santa Barbara County to the Mexican border. This report presents quantitative data and statistical estimates of effort, total catch, catch of preferred sport fish species, and length frequencies of selected species landed by private-boat sport fishermen. An estimated 55,000 anglers and 3,300 divers landed 182,000 fishes, molluscs, and crustaceans. The major components of the catch were 1) rockfishes, Sebastes spp., 73,000 landed; 2) white croaker, Genyonemus lineatus, 28,000 landed; 3) bass, Paralabrax spp., 15,000 landed; and 4) Pacific bonito, Sarda chiliensis, 12,000 landed.
