Abstract

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.)
