Which California port totaled up the most valuable commercial landings in 2018? How many saltwater sport fishing trips did anglers and divers undertake last year? How many ocean-based scientific collecting permits did the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) issue in 2018? The answers to these questions and more can be found in the Marine Region: 2018 By the Numbers report, now available on the CDFW website!
The six-page By the Numbers report consists of tables and facts summarizing the most significant commercial and recreational fish landings in the state, and other statistical information related to ocean fishing and CDFW’s Marine Region operations. Together with the Marine Region: 2018 Year in Review, the reports help to keep readers informed of the status of various fisheries and region activities on a year-by-year basis. The reports also 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.
