Abstract

The California yellowtail, Seriola dorsalis, is a highly favored sport fish and a minor commercial species. Since 1954 commercial landings have been limited by demand, and the sport catch has been about three times the number of fish caught by commercial fishermen. Recreational fishing for yellowtail in southern California waters is almost entirely dependent on annual migrants from central and northern Baja California. The resource is presently healthy but reduced catches off California could be the result of an expanded catch off Mexico. (19pp.)
