California’s fishery statistics are based on data submitted by fish dealers and processors who submit copies of their landing records to the Department. Data concerning each commercial landing is recorded on receipts by fish dealers or processors at the time of delivery. For each transaction, the dealer must provide data concerning the species, weight, and price paid to the fisherman. The date of the transaction, the fisherman’s name, the fishing vessel registration number, and intended use for the fish (canning, fresh, etc.) is also required. In addition, type of gear used and the area where the fish were caught is reported.
