The daily catch
of commercial sportfishing boats along the southern California
coast are reported in the Los Angeles Times newspaper.
Microfiche copies of the L.A. Times from 1959 to 1997
were searched and more than 14,000 daily reports were
assembled and photocopied. These data, representing almost
400,000 catch reports for some 25 sportfishing landings
were complied into a CD-ROM database that allows rapid
retrieval of historical catch and angler effort data and
the analysis of spatial and temporal trends.
