Southern California Fisheries Research & Management Project


Project staff uses fishery-independent methods including scuba to gather data from nearshore environments. The project goal is to provide information to improve management of nearshore resources. Staff activities include data collection for stock assessments, evaluation of marine protected areas, monitoring of important fished species and their habitats, and determination of life-history parameters for various species. Southern California Fisheries Research & Management Project staff often work collaboratively with other agencies, academic institutions, and the fishing community on large-scale monitoring and research efforts.
