MRIP Regional Implementation Plan for the Pacific Coast

December 05, 2019

This Regional Implementation Plan informs recreational data collection efforts in Oregon, Washington, and California.

The MRIP Regional Implementation Plan for the Pacific Coast (2019-2021) informs the Marine Recreational Information Program's work in Oregon, Washington, and California. It was developed by theĀ Pacific Coast Recreational Fisheries Information Network (Pacific RecFIN), which serves as MRIP's Pacific Regional Implementation Team. It includes an assessment of regional data collection programs and a list of regional implementation priorities to meet recreational data needs.

The Marine Recreational Information Program operates as a state-regional-federal partnership.

Pacific Coast Regional Implementation Priorities

The MRIP Regional Implementation Plan for the Pacific Coast (2019-2021) identifies the following priorities:

  • Maintain and restore base level funding for sampling saltwater recreational anglers and for-hire operators.
  • Implement and support enhanced electronic data collection.
  • Increase on-board sampling.
  • Investigate and maintain video effort counts.
  • Stratify party charter sampling by trip type and sampling period for Southern California highly migratory fisheries.
  • Provide improved access to the Marine Recreational Fisheries Statistics Survey (MRFSS) database.
  • Calibrate historical catch estimates in Oregon and Washington.
