Commercial Market Squid Landing Receipt Data

Processors of commercial market squid landings submit receipts twice a month by law (Fish and Game Code ยง 8046). Receipts contain catch location (California Department of Fish and Wildlife Blocks) and catch information (pounds landed) for each landing. Catch (short tons) data have been mapped by CDFW blocks and market squid fishing season from 2000/2001 to 2012/2013. A table of California commercial market squid landings (short tons), seasonal catch limit (short tons) and ex-vessel value for each mapped fishing season is included below the maps.

Note: This product does not contain any confidential commercial market squid landings data. Vessel activity was not disclosed where less than 3 vessels set per block per season. Some seasons may appear to contain no data to protect the confidentiality of vessel location information.
