During the period October 1 - December 31, 1975,
Department personnel made 176 sampling trips aboard
southern California partyboats. A total of 25,721 fish
from 77 species was identified and measured.
Otoliths were removed from 1,767 rockfish carcasses

Sampling personnel tagged and released 192 California
barracuda, Sphyraena argentea; 2 white seabass, Cynoscion
nobilis; and 29 sablefish, Anoplopoma fimbria.

paucispinis; Pacific bonito, Sarda chiliensis; chilipepper,
Sebastes goodei; olive rockfish, Sebastes serranoides;
vermilion rockfish, Sebastes miniatus, white croaker,
