Experienced anglers needed for hook-and-line fishing project used to monitor California marine protected areas (MPAs) along the central California coast!

California Collaborative Fisheries Research Program (CCFRP) volunteers aide local scientists in the collection of valuable data on economically important marine fish species by fishing on board party boats out of Monterey and Half Moon Bay. Once caught, each fish is identified, measured, tagged and released at their respective MPA or reference site. Data recorded from these fishing expeditions will eventually be used by state regulators to evaluate the effectiveness of MPAs in the region.

CCFRP is a partnership of the fishing and scientific communities of central California.By combining the expertise and ideas of fishermen and scientists, we have successfully established protocols that are to gather information for fisheries management and to monitor potential changes in local fish populations with reference to marine protected areas.

This project is a collaborative effort among researchers from CA Sea Grant at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories and SLOSEA/Center for Coastal Marine Sciences at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and the captains and crew of F/Vs Admiral, Caroline, Fiesta, Huli Cat, New Captain Pete, Pacific Horizon, Patriot, Princess, Queen of Hearts, Rita G, Salty Lady, and Tigerfish.

Join us for a day on the water and some awesome fishing while contributing to our understanding of important marine populations!

Note: Volunteer anglers should have a fair amount of experience fishing in the marine environment. Volunteer anglers must be at least 16 years of age in order to participate. All participants must be able to spend extended periods of time (up to 10 hours per day) on a recreational fishing boat, in potentially rough waters. An interest in marine fish/fishing is strongly desired. Please also note that there will be no individual take on these cruises, in accordance with our CDFG Scientific Collecting Permits.

As an expat of the wildlife biology crowd and moderatly obsessed fisherman, I would love to do this! :smt006

I am pretty sure I can do both Half Moon Bay trips if there is still room  :smt001
I will know for sure tomorrow.

Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps

Can you please provide the details of this study?  The data is only as good as the methods use to gather and interpret it.  We should all understand exactly what is going on before volunteering to participate.

Why are hook and line surveys deemed an appropriate method (vs other methods such as trawl surveys or visual dive surveys) to evaluate the effectiveness of MPAs in the region?  This method requires the fish to actually be feeding.  We all know that fishing can be good the one day and bad they next with things such as weather, currents, moon phases, lure choice, and what you ate for breakfast affecting the fishing.  How do you ensure your sample set is statistically valid?

This just smells of feel-good PR to me.  Gee, let's involve the fisherman.

Sorry, just speaking my mind here.

visual dive surveys

Dive at Ano Nuevo?  naaaaah

But I see your point polepole.  i was wondering about the hook and line thing myself before you wrote.  Any controls used for hook size can be criticized for introducing biased selection of a certain fish size, i.e., small sabiki-ish jigs = dinker population
