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 final California Commercial Landings and Commercial Passenger Fishing Vessel reports for 2013 have been posted to the CDFW website.
Reports dating back to the year 2000 can also be found online. These reports are used widely by the fishing industry here and abroad to monitor trends in fishing and the economics of California’s commercial fishing efforts.
