Rockfish Recruitment and Ecosystem Assessment Survey

In 1983, the Groundfish Analysis Team began a series of annual surveys designed to assess the recruitment strength of juvenile rockfish and various economically and ecologically important species, and to examine the general state of the ecosystem and its variability along the central California coast. Midwater trawls were conducted and CTDs performed during late spring every year since 1983. Initially the survey area was Monterey to Point Reyes; however, in 2004 the geographic range was extended to San Diego through Mendocino.
