Abstract

The catch landed and effort expended by private-boat sport fishermen were studied from July, 1975 through June, 1976, in order to determine the magnitude and impact of one segment of the marine sport fishery in southern California. Fishermen returning from a fishing trip were interviewed at launch ramps, boat hoists, and boat rental locations from Pt. Conception to the Mexican border. This report presents quantitative data and statistical estimates of total effort, total catch, catch of preferred sport fish species, and length-frequencies of size-regulated species. An estimated 944,000 organisms were landed by 315,000 anglers and 16,500 divers. A large variety of species was landed, but six species contributed over one-half of the catch. Divers landed very few sublegal organisms, but anglers took large numbers of sublegal size fish. Continuance of this study will be necessary to show changes in fish availability, fishing pressure, and compliance with fishing regulations. (64pp.)
