- et al.
Catch bulletins provide records of fishery landings and their value to the fishermen during one or more years. This bulletin covering 1957 and 1958 is the 18th of a series reporting the commercial fish catch of California. Prior records have been published regularly in this form beginning with the 1926 and 1927 landings. The statistical system and methods were fully described in Fish Bulletin 86, catch bulletin for 1950.
California's commercial fishery records system contains enumeration of the catch based on receipts completed by the dealer at the time he receives fish. Numerous fishery biologists, wardens and clerical personnel make every effort to insure that the basic catch record reported from the field is complete. Published figures are of national and international interest to fisheries biologists, legislators, chambers of commerce, members of the fishing industry, educators and other individuals.
