Abstract

During the Quarter we surveyed seven permanent and 48 random subtidal stations. In addition a new study was undertaken with the surveying of one random subtidal station in Diablo Cove where counts were made of small invertebrates within four 1/4-m quadrats. Red abalone, Haliotis rufescens, numbers continued to decrease at random as well as permanent stations in Diablo Cove. Bull kelp, Nereocystis lustkeana, more than doubled in density in Diablo Cove. Permanent stations showed a decline in giant red sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus franciscanus, numbers while random stations indicated an increase in abundance. (14pp.) The commercial sea urchin fishery was inactive. Commercial abalone fishermen were observed infrequently in the Pecho Rock area.
