CCFRP Santa Barbara has a successful 2017 season !

March 09, 2018

Hello California Collaborative Fisheries Research Program (CCFRP) participants!

2017 was CCFRP's first year at many institutions, with groups from Humboldt State University, UC Davis, and UC San Diego getting out on the water for the first time. We are all excited to join Moss Landing Marine Labs and Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in what is now a statewide monitoring program! Check out the CCFRP website ( for information from other institutions regarding their field seasons.

As we move into our second sampling season, we would like to thank everyone for their hard work and dedication, especially the Captain and Crew of the Stardust. Without your help, we would be unable to provide critical information for fisheries management and unable to contribute to the state's most extensive database on nearshore fisheries with respect to MPAs. We are extremely grateful for your support, and we hope you will continue to support us in the years to come.

Finally, please take a moment to "Like" both the Caselle Lab ( and CCFRP ( on Facebook, as well as follow us on Instagram. We will continue to post new content and keep everyone updated via email as we prepare for our upcoming field season! We look forward to fishing with you again in 2018!
