Fisheries Forum Reports

Beginning in 1973, California's Joint Legislative Committee on Fisheries and Aquaculture hosted a Fisheries Forum each year at the State Capitol in Sacramento. The Fisheries Forum provided an opportunity for those involved in recreational and commercial fishing to come to Sacramento and speak directly to their representatives about statewide commercial and sport fishery issues and fisheries research. Many laws protecting the fisheries, aquaculture and marine interests were developed as a result of information gathered at past Fisheries Forums. The California Department of Fish and Wildlife's Marine Region prepared annual reports that summarized the status and issues facing California's marine fisheries and aquaculture for the Fisheries Forum. The historical Fisheries Forum Reports below have been replaced by the Marine Region Year in Review.
