Saltwater Angling and Diving Records
The CDFW saltwater angling and diving record programs recognize exceptional saltwater finfish and shellfish taken in California by sport anglers and divers. These records are updated regularly. The program has given CDFW biologists the opportunity to examine trophy-sized catches since the 1950s.
