Which fisheries were affected by domoic acid in 2018? What huge upgrade was kicked off last year for commercial landings reporting? What new fishery management plans were under development in 2018? The answers to these questions and more can be found in the Marine Region 2018 Year in Review, now available on the CDFW Marine Region website!
The 28-page Review summarizes Marine Region activities in 2018, from abalone surveys to white seabass management. Over the last year, region staff worked to maintain and advance California fisheries management, monitoring, scientific research, and outreach, often in coordination with partners and the public, covering a broad range of ocean-related topics.
The Marine Region Year in Review reports help to keep readers informed of the status of various fisheries and region activities on a year-by-year basis. Prefaced with thought-provoking messages from Dr. Craig Shuman, Marine Region Manager, the reviews help to familiarize readers with all the region does to protect, maintain, enhance, and restore California’s marine life and ecosystems. Reports dating back to 2014 are available on the CDFW website.
