Sign-Ups

To sign up for trips, please send us an email (jelstner@ucsd.edu & clcoscin@ucsd.edu) letting us know the trips you’d like to go out on. At this time, please limit your selection to your top 3 choices, so that everyone has the opportunity to participate. Please include your name and “CCFRP Trip Preferences” in the subject of the email. Our staff will confirm your trip dates as we receive them. We will provide you with trip-specific information as we get closer to the sampling date. If the trip you’d like to go on is full, we will add you to the waitlist should someone else cancel.

Guests

If you are bringing a guest, they must be signed up under their own reservation. You can do this for them by providing their name and email in your email to us. Please remember that all participants must be 18 or older.

Gear Designations

Gear designations will be made about a week before each trip. We will send an email asking for volunteers to fish swimbaits. The first 5 (or however many needed) to respond will be given swimbait designations. Dropper loop and shrimp fly designations will be chosen randomly.

Cancellations

Please send us an email if you need to cancel your reservation so that we can give your spot to someone on the waitlist.

About

The California Collaborative Fisheries Program was built on many years of active collaborative research between anglers and scientists in both the Morro Bay and Moss Landing areas of Central California. During the planning stages of the program it was important to build an open process by including key stakeholders such as the fishing community, resource managers and agency and academic scientists in the process of collectively defining research questions and developing research protocols to assess the effectiveness of MPA closures on nearshore fish populations. Through countless workshops with key stakeholders, the CCFRP developed standardized hook-and-line and trap fishing protocols to survey Central California MPAs that incorporate fisherman knowledge and expertise within the confines of a scientifically sound sampling design.
