Cooperative Research and Assessment of Nearshore Ecosystems (CRANE) Program

Fishery-Independent Research: Shallow Subtidal Studies
CRANE is a collaborative effort between the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), various universities, private organizations, and government programs to gather and report data for fishery management and performance of marine protected areas. In 2004, funding was available for a wide-scale survey and report of fish and invertebrate populations in shalllow, rocky habitats accessible to divers (Monterey to San Diego, including the Channel Islands).
