- Abstract: We worked with central California fishing communities to develop monitoring protocols for the use of hook-and-line fishing gear, and to collect baseline information for California Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). We completed 118 hook-and-line survey days between 2007 and 2009, in the Año Nuevo, Point Lobos, Piedras Blancas, and Point Buchon MPAs, and in corresponding reference sites, and in the proposed Point Reyes and North and Southeast Farallon Islands MPAs, and near Bolinas/ Duxbury Reef. Within these areas, we used a stratified random sampling design to determine sampling locations. At each location, experienced, volunteer anglers fished with standardized gear for a specified amount of time. Caught fishes were identified to species, measured, tagged with external T-bar anchor tags, and released at location of capture. We worked with a total of 14 Commercial Passenger Fishing Vessel (CPFV) captains and 413 volunteer anglers, and caught a total of 22,780 fishes, comprised of 40 species.
