CRFS catch records for Cabezon, Greenling, Kelpbass, Lingcod, Rockfish, Scorpionfish, and Sheephead are aggregated for this analysis. All catch of these species were summed by year and attributed to the locations which were recorded during the survey interview. The total number of anglers that targeted “bottom fish” in each block by year was also determined. CPUA is a simple calculation of the number of fish caught divided by the number of anglers targeting those species within a particular 1’ block in a given period. This summary includes the statewide CRFS sample data filtered to blocks where a minimum of 4 anglers per year visited that location.
The Mission of the Department of Fish and Wildlife is to manage California's diverse fish, wildlife, and plant resources, and the habitats upon which they depend, for their ecological values and for their use and enjoyment by the public.
