The purpose of the Fishing Communities Project was to provide detailed historical and current social science information on four Northern California port communities – Crescent City, Trinidad, Eureka/Fields Landing, and Noyo/Fort Bragg. In additionto profiling each community, the project alsoprovides a regional overview that encompasses the three counties – Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte – in which these communities are situated. While this report is intended tohelp address fishery management needs, it canbe used in a range of processes, from local planning and education to state and regional policy issues.
