California Commercial Jack Mackerel Landing Receipt Data

California processors of commercial jack mackerel landings submit receipts twice a month to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) as required by Fish and Game Code Section 8046. Receipts contain catch location (CDFW blocks) and catch information (pounds landed) for each landing. Catch data (in metric tons) were mapped by CDFW block and year from 2000 to 2015. A table of California commercial landings and harvest guidelines (in metric tons) for the West Coast of the United States, and California ex-vessel value corresponding to each season, is provided here.

Note: No confidential commercial jack mackerel landings data are listed here. Vessel activity was not disclosed where less than three vessels set per block, per year. Some years may appear to contain no data to protect the confidentiality of vessel location information.

* In 2000, the federal Northern Anchovy Fishery Management Plan (FMP) was amended (Amendment 8) to change the name of the Northern Anchovy FMP to the Coastal Pelagic Species FMP, in order to include other coastal pelagic species in the FMP (including jack mackerel), and to set the acceptable biological catch for the fishery to 31,000 metric tons per year. In 2011, the Pacific Fishery Management Council adopted Amendment 13, which set the current harvest specifications for the jack mackerel fishery for the West Coast of the United States (i.e., California, Oregon and Washington).
