The catch landed and effort expended by private-boat sport fishermen were studied in southern California between January and March 1983 in order to determine the impact on local marine resources by one segment of the sport fishery. Fishermen returning from fishing trips were interviewed at launch ramps, hoists, and boat-rental facilities. This
report contains quantitative data and statistical estimates of total effort, total catch, catch of selected species, and length frequencies for those species with minimum size limits.
An estimated 74,200 organisms were landed by 29,400 anglers and 1500 divers. The major species in the angler catch included white croaker, Genyonemus lineatus, (16,000 landed) and Pacific mackerel, Scomber japonicus (14,000 landed). The two species combined made up 44% of the total estimated angler catch. Divers, hampered in their activity by stormy conditions, landed an estimated 1700 rock scallop, Hinnites
multirugosus. This single species represented almost a third of the estimated diver catch.
The length frequency data, collected for size-regulated fish and shellfish species, show that minimum size-limit compliance was very good for both angler-caught and diver-caught species during the reporting period. (31pp.)
