Summaries of Recreational Fishery Catch, Revenue, and Effort

Albacore

  • Table R1. Recreational albacore catch (number of kept fish) for charter and private boats by year and port, 2016-2018.
  • Table R2. Recreational albacore effort (angler days*) for charter and private boats by year and port, 2016-2018.
  • Table R3. Recreational albacore catch per unit of effort (number of kept fish/angler day*) for charter and private boats by year and port, 2016-2018.

* California and Oregon record catch and effort by angler day. Washington records catch and effort by angler trip, although the majority of trips are equal to one day. With very infrequent exceptions, the duration of Oregon recreational fishing trips by private anglers and by charter anglers is 24 hours or less, and encompasses one day of fishing activity.

  • Tables R-4 and R-5. Estimated number of highly migratory MUS kept and thrown back alive by recreational anglers fishing from California private vessels in U.S. EEZ waters (Table R-4) and Mexico waters (Table R-5), 2016-2018.
  • Tables R-6 and R-7.  Reported number of highly migratory MUS kept and thrown back by recreational anglers fishing from California Commercial Passenger Fishing Vessels (CPFVs) in U.S. EEZ waters (Table R-6) and Mexico waters (Table R-7), 2016-2018.
