What Rockfish Can Tell Us About Pollution

 

The California Collaborative Fisheries Research Program (CCFRP) is a partnership that brings together marine researchers, management agencies, and local fishers. Together, the communities explore Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), which are sanctioned zones on the California coast with heavy anthropogenic restrictions to protect local marine life. By collaborating with local anglers to survey rockfish near these areas, scientists can further their research communication to advocate for improved fisheries management.

8,000 Fish in 12 Days

With funding from California Sea Grant, the California Collaborative Fisheries Research Program (CCFRP) provides an insightful volunteering experience with rockfish.
