CTE003 - Recreational Fishery Total Mortality by Mode: Number of Fish, or Metric-Tons (mt)

This report was generated using 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. This report contains estimates of highly migratory species (HMS) catch from Oregon and Washington. California HMS Commercial Passenger Fishing Vessel (CPFS) landings are available at: https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Fishing/Commerical/Landings. California HMS CPFV and recreational private vessel catch estimates are available at: https://www.pcouncil.org/highly-migratory-species/stock-assessment-and-fishery-evaluation-safe-documents/ (HMS Stock Assessement and Fishery Evaluation Documents). Depth-dependent mortality estimates have been applied to released groundfish for Oregon and California for all years. Depth-dependent mortality is not available for Washington catch estimates from 1990 – 2004. For this time period, estimates are only available for the following columns: RELEASED_NUM, RELEASED_KG, RETAINED_NUM, RETAINED_KG, TOTAL_MORTALITY_NUM (only from retained fish), and TOTAL_MORTALITY_KG (only from retained fish). Estimates for RELEASED_DEAD_NUM, RELEASED_DEAD_KG, RELEASED_ALIVE_NUM, and RELEASED_ALIVE_KG are not available for Washington from 1990 – 2004.
