California Department of Fish and Wildlife

Marine Region Projects

Established in November 1997, the Marine Region is one of the seven CDFW regions that divide California into discrete, manageable areas. The Marine Region extends along the entire California coastline from border to border and approximately three nautical miles out to sea, including offshore islands. Through development of specific projects, staff provide for fisheries and habitat management, environmental review, and water quality monitoring statewide. The fourteen projects listed below exemplify the breadth and depth of Marine Region commitment to protecting, researching, and providing for the use of marine resources for each California resident and visitor.
