Recreational Fishery Total Mortality - Summary Report: Number of Fish, or Metric-Tons (mt)

This report was generated using the state agency recreational fishery data from the RecFIN comprehensive data. This report includes all Pacific coast areas, and other inland areas where marine fish are caught. Pacific halibut and salmon catch estimates are not included in this report, and California estimates may differ from previously posted estimates. Depth-dependent mortality estimates have been applied to released groundfish for all years.
