Abstract

Pacific bonito, Sarda chiliensis, have been fished in California waters since at least the beginning of this century. Commercial landings between 1916 and 1971 varied widely, with a low of 128,000 lbs in 1956 and a high of 21.2 million lbs in 1967 (Table 1). The catch is partly dependent upon availability, but it is strongly influenced by economic factors. The size and condition of the resource is unknown at present although it appears that the catch could be substantially increased without damage to the resource. (17pp.)
