Between April 1 and June 30, 1977, 125 trips were
sampled aboard southern California partyboats by Department
personnel. A total of 14,842 fishes belonging to 72 species was identified and measured. Otoliths were
removed from 134 rockfish carcasses representing 20
species for age deterination studies.
The 10 most common species sampled during the quarter
accounted for 76.9% of the catch. Individually, the most
common were Pacific mackerel, Scomber japonicus (16.9%);
kelp bass, Paralabrax clathratus (14.5%); bocaccio, Sebastes paucispinis (11.4%); Pacific bonito, Sarda chiliensis (10.3%); barred sand bass, Paralabrax nebulifer (5.6%); olive rockfish, Sebastes serranoides (5.3%); chilipepper, S. goodei (4.0%); California barracuda, Sphyraena argentea (2.9%); and ocean whitefish, Caulolatilus princeps (2.8%).
Fishing effort switched from "rockcod" to surface
activity as it did during the second quarter of 1976 (26pp.)
