Northern and Central California Finfish Research and Management Project

formerly State Finfish Management Project

Project biologists participate in data collection and analysis, research, monitoring, surveying, and other management activities related to state-managed finfish species, including surfperches (especially barred surfperch), California halibut, kelp bass, and hagfish. Information gathered from fishery-independent and fishery-dependent sources may contribute to stock assessments, developing management options, and public informational aids (such as pamphlets) for state-managed finfish.
