Snapshot Reports


The Snapshot Series is a key ingredient of the State of the California South Coast report, released in 2017, which provides a comprehensive ecological and socioeconomic baseline characterization of the region. Each 'snapshot report' focuses on specific baseline projects, key ecosystems, and special places and translates the technical reporting from the state-funded baseline projects and other scientific efforts in the region into a digestible format that a range of audiences can use.

The South Coast Snapshot Series was developed by California Ocean Science Trust, in partnership with California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the California Ocean Protection Council, and California Sea Grant.
