Through analyzing and reviewing fisheries data, project staff provides annual and in-season management options and recommendations to the Fish and Game Commission and the Pacific Fishery Management Council (PFMC). Staff monitors and develops regulations for the commercial and recreational groundfish fisheries. "Groundfish" include rockfishes, flatfishes, roundfishes (including sablefish, cabezon, lingcod, and greenlings), and some sharks and skates. Staff also conducts and reviews stock assessments, and represents California fisheries on the PFMC Groundfish Management Team.
