Disclaimer: This is an interactive, draft mock-up that was created to inform the development of the California Fisheries Portal. This is not an active website and does not represent the final draft of the California Fisheries Portal. This mock-up was developed based on the first stakeholder focus group (2018) and serves as an interactive discussion draft for the stakeholder webinar on March 22, 2019.

The California Fisheries Portal provides searchable access to Enhanced Status Reports (ESRs) for state-managed fisheries. The Portal may be expanded to include other types of fisheries information and data in the future.
