National Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Policy : West Coast Regional Implementation Plan 2016-2017
Details:
  • Description:
    We have made excellent progress in achieving many of the key objectives set out in the 2014-2015 WCR Recreational Fisheries Action Agenda (Progress Report, Appendix A). Highlights include research on the impacts of angling on survivorship of released sharks, the installment of monofilament recycling stations in key watersheds and access areas, collaborative biological and economic surveys with industry partners, and improvements in the quality of data used in stock assessments for important West Coast gamefish species. A major outreach focus was active engagement with anglers, which we accomplished via representation at major fishing shows in California and Washington, participating on sportsfishing talk radio shows, and establishing a comprehensive West Coast Rec Fish Listserv communications platform. Our outreach and education campaign told the story of innovative rockfish barotrauma research conducted in collaboration with our industry partners and scientists, documented best practices for safe catch-and-release of rockfish using descending devices in partnership with the West Coast state Fish and Wildlife Departments and the Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission, and communicated the science supporting the domestic and international management and conservation of the Pacific bluefin tuna.
