CPFV Initial Changes: Figures and Tables

Cheryl Chen / Ecotrust, Future of Fish

Data Package Summary


This data set is a part of Ecotrust's project entitled: Establishing a Baseline and Assessing Spatial and Socioeconomic Change in the California Central Coast Commercial and CPFV Fisheries. This project is a component of the Central Coast Baseline Program, the goal of which is to establish a benchmark of ecological and socioeconomic conditions at the time MPAs were implemented, and to explore any initial changes that may have occurred since MPAs were established. The Central Coast region includes all state waters from Pigeon Point to Point Conception.

Under a non-disclosure agreement with the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG), Ecotrust worked with CDFG staff to analyze CPFV logbook data from 2000-2011, which were transmitted to Ecotrust in a summarized form in May 2012. CPFV logbook data, which are submitted by each CPFV vessel operator each year, document the number of passengers, the number of fish caught, and other characteristics of each fishing trip. These data have been summarized to protect confidentiality of individual operators; data points that consists of less than three CPFV operators have been suppressed. This data set investigates initial changes in CPFV fleet in the Central Coast Region from 2000-2011.

The primary goal of this project was to collect up-to-date information on historical trends, current socioeconomic conditions, and the spatial distribution and economic value of key commercial fisheries and the commercial passenger fishing vessel (CPFV) fleet in the Central Coast Region.
