Abstract

For the second consecutive year, a program of random field sampling of anglers and divers fishing from privately owned boats was conducted at southern California launch ramps, hoists, and boat rental facilities. This study presents quantitative data and statistical estimates of effort, total catch, catch of preferred sport fish species, and length frequencies of particular species landed by private boat sport fishermen. An assessment of sport fishermen's compliance with current fishing regulations is also included. Catch composition and effort levels varied considerably among the five counties sampled, reflecting differences in water temperature, offshore habitat, and preferences for particular species by local fishermen. A comparison of this year's results with those of last year showed that although catch rates for some species were similar both years, others diverged considerably. (84pp.)
