Abstract

State law provides for the initiation of a fishery for Pacific sardines, Sardinops sagax caeruleus, when the spawning biomass of sardines reaches 20,000 short tons. Data from ichthyoplankton surveys, sea survey cruises, the mackerel fishery sampling program, and the live-bait fishery monitoring program are discussed with regard to an increase in population size. It appears that the spawning biomass of the northern stock of Pacific sardines remains below 20,000 tons. Legislation passed in 1983 which affects the incidental take and commercial use of sardines is also discussed. (9pp.)
