Abstract

The purpose of the Fishing CommunitiesProject 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 addition to profiling each community, the project also provides a regional overview that encompasses the three counties – Mendocino, Humboldt, and Del Norte – in which these communities are situated. While this report is intended to help address fishery management needs, it can be used in a range of processes, from local planning and education to state and regional policy issues.
