  • Summaries of Projects Selected for Funding through the South Coast MPA Baseline Program | California Sea Grant
    from stakeholders and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to determine landings and catch per unit effort CPUE and documenting short term changes in fishing effort and efficiency due to MPA establishment A key component of this project was a collaboration with lobster fishermen from San Diego Laguna Beach and Palos Verdes to implement a tag recapture program to generate estimates of lobster abundance at large spatial scales as well as size distribution and rates of movement across MPA boundaries spillover The tag recapture program was paired with SCUBA based dive surveys by scientists and students to provide independent estimates of lobster abundance and habitat use Work plan 25AB Hovel Valencia pdf Progress Reports Year 1 RMPA 25AB SDSU SDOF Yr1 pdf Progress Reports Year 2 25A Hovel pdf Final Report Baseline ROV Surveys of Subtidal Ecosystems James Lindholm Cal State Monterey Bay and Dirk Rosen Marine Applied Research and Exploration The Baseline ROV Surveys of Subtidal Ecosystems project is a collaboration between researchers at the Institute for Applied Marine Ecology IfAME at California State University Monterey Bay Marine Applied Research and Exploration MARE and Moss Landing Marine Laboratories In this project researchers used a remotely operated vehicle ROV to fly half a meter above the seafloor at depths ranging from 20 500 meters The ROV took video and still images that were used to characterize these deep sea communities Researchers identified counted and sized fishes and invertebrates in both soft bottom and rocky habitats On going analyses of the data collected during the baseline period include the vertical distribution of fishes and invertebrates in the La Jolla Canyons the interaction of depth and substrate in structuring communities on the continental shelf across the region and the habitat associations of spot and ridgeback prawns The data collected as part of this project provides a baseline characterization of selected MPAs and reference sites an assessment of initial changes following MPA implementation and recommendations for future monitoring efforts in the region Work plan 26AB Lindholm Rosen pdf Progress Reports Year 1 RMPA 26AB CSUMB MARE Yr1 pdf Progress Reports Year 2 26A B Lindholm Rosen pdf Final Report Baseline Characterization of Kelp Shallow Rock Ecosystems Daniel J Pondella Vantuna Research Group Occidental College and Jennifer Caselle UC Santa Barbara The Baseline Characterization of Kelp and Shallow Rock Ecosystems project is a collaboration between researchers at Vantuna Research Group at Occidental College and the Partnership for Interdisciplinary Studies of Coastal Oceans PISCO at the University of California Santa Barbara In this project researchers characterized kelp and shallow rock ecosystems inside and outside MPAs in the South Coast region The baseline surveys together with historical and future data are enabling scientists to measure changes in species and communities over both short and long time scales From 2011 2013 SCUBA divers surveyed kelp forests and associated reference sites to estimate fish kelp and benthic invertebrate densities fish size distributions and percent cover of invertebrates and algae to produce a quantitative baseline characterization of the

  • Study: Non-native Manila clam has established in Mission Bay, San Diego | California Sea Grant
    dense beds in places where it has established including in the canals of Venice Italy and shores of British Columbia The clam has crowded out native species in these areas but their ecosystem impacts in Southern California have not yet been researched Sinicrope Talley says this means Manila clam is not a high priority for removal compared to known pests When it comes to non native species she says We are often reactive waiting until something starts interfering or costing us money before taking action By that point populations are usually well established and therefore costly and difficult to remove For a new arrival like the Manila clam The time to discuss management strategies would be now she says Instead Sinicrope Talley hopes that their arrival might spur discussion about the tradeoffs between non native fisheries and their potential ecosystem impacts In the Northwest aquafarms actively seed the economically valuable Manila clam on tidal flats It is found outside of these farms all over the region and is considered naturalized an acceptable part of the ecosystem CA Sea Grant Extension Director Rick Starr notes that such decisions are not new California supports several non native economically important fisheries such as striped bass and largemouth bass The Manila clam is unlikely to achieve that status here While Sinicrope Talley s study reveals that conditions in San Diego appear favorable for wild populations of Manila clam the poor water quality of local bays would prohibit recreational harvest We could allow the Manila clam to continue to disperse in our bays says Sinicrope Talley but we couldn t harvest and eat those Only clams from commercial farms are harvested from certified growing waters and tested for safety as food So one question is whether our demand and the economic benefits of the farmed

  • How can we grow aquaculture in California? | California Sea Grant
    to private shellfish growers Under the current system it can take months at great expense to gain individual approval from the California Coastal Commission U S Army Corp of Engineers Department of Fish and Wildlife the regional water quality control board and local government Both regulators and growers see aquaculture a k a fish or shellfish farming as an industry swimming with opportunity The symposium brought together a number of lawyers regulators scientists and growers to begin a broader discussion about aquaculture law and the sector s potential as a significant domestic source of seafood Global seafood needs will be up 27 million metric tons by 2030 said California Sea Grant Extension Specialist Paul Olin The worldwide production of capture fisheries has essentially plateaued since the mid 1980s and Olin sees aquaculture as a possible part of the solution The pre permitting process initiated by the Humboldt Bay Harbor District is an innovative way to support the growth of shellfish farming in the region and allow new growers to farm shellfish with a reasonable entry investment If successful it will create a number of new businesses and contribute to the local and regional economy Other regulators at the symposium agreed Diane Windham NOAA Fisheries West Coast Regional Aquaculture Coordinator said that California needs supportive regulatory framework to encourage aquaculture efforts There is a need for sustainable seafood said Windham Aquaculture can create jobs and support coastal communities According to NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service global aquaculture production is dominated by Asia 89 percent while China alone accounts for 62 percent The United States ranks 15th in total aquaculture production behind China India Vietnam Indonesia Bangladesh Norway Thailand Egypt Chile Myanmar Philippines Brazil Japan and South Korea according to the 2012 United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization report on The State
