  • This project has the potential to enhance management and conservation of nearshore species by reducing the risk of overfishing or local depletion for species with no current statewide monitoring beyond fisheries catches, and those with no federal stock assessment.
  • Two Fisheries projects

    1. 1. Toward Resilience and Sustainable Seafood Supply: Assessing Direct Marketing Approaches for the West Coast Fishing Communities PI: Barbara Walker, UCSB Co-PIs: Carolynn Culver, UCSB; Kimberly Selkoe, UCSB; Caroline Pomeroy, UCSC Associate PIs: Stephanie Mutz, Commercial Fishermen of Santa Barbara; Pete Granger, Washington Sea Grant; Jamie Doyle, Oregon Sea Grant; Jeff Feldner, Oregon Sea Grant; Amber Von Harten, South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium; Heather Lahr, Santa Barbara Sustainable Seafood Program
    2. 2. West Coast DMA Project West Coast Sea Grant Regional Social Science ResearchObjectives:• Evaluate the patterns, processes, and impacts associated with seafood DMAs• Integrate this knowledge into practical tools for use by west coast communities and others in DMAs decision making• Pilot communities - Santa Barbara, CA & Coos Bay, OR
    3. 3. Taking Stock of Oregon’s Nearshore Fisheries:Development of Simple Assessment Tools for Better Management PI: Selina Heppell Oregon State University Fisheries and Wildlife
    4. 4. Stock assessment for data-poor speciesBig Idea:• Enhance management and conservation of nearshore fish• Reduce the risk of overfishing or local depletionRelevance:• OR nearshore fisheries not represented by federal catch limits• ODFW tracks species through fish catch – fish tickets, logbooks, and landings
    5. 5. Stock assessment for data-poor speciesResearch Objectives:• Establish methods most appropriate for local stock assessment• Determine whether changes to local monitoring are neededOutreach:• “Stock Assessment 101” workshops• Partners: ODFW, POORT & PFMC
