The California Department of Fish and Wildlife produced this report in collaboration with the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans (PISCO), Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, and Channel Islands National Park. The contributing authors are scientists from research institutions and government agencies who conducted biological and socioeconomic monitoring in the Channel Islands region. The report is based on preliminary results from selected projects conducted during the first 5 years of monitoring the Channel Islands marine protected areas (MPAs), presented by scientists at a public symposium in Oxnard, California, on February 7-8, 2008 . The selected projects relate to California Department of Fish and Wildlife priorities in the Channel Islands Marine Protected Areas Monitoring Plan.
