This week we’ll be learning about odfw’s work sampling commercial fisheries. we’ll be taking a tour of the coast and first up is one of oregon’s biggest ports: astoria. on any day, in any port, thousands of pounds of seafood are delivered from the ocean to the docks and odfw partners with industry to track the landings. odfw biologists are on the docks as the vessels land and sort their catch -- many, many species. sometimes even the biologists can’t resist a pic with a big, beautiful fish! this sampling data is valuable because it provides some of the information used in tracking how fish populations are doing. #marinefish#marinebiology#rockfish#pacificcoast#myodfwtakeover
Limits of lingcod today at santa rosa island! excellent quality on today’s rockfish & whitefish as well. we started out in deeper water and worked our way shallow throughout the day. catching mostly big chucks and had a few stops with hungry lingcod. the live bait and squid worked the best. we did catch some fish with the jig.
our 16 anglers caught 137 rockfish, 32 lingcod, 33 whitefish, 1 cab.
we have a few spots on our wednesday & friday 3/4 day and plenty of room thursday & sunday for our 1/2 days. to make a reservation you can book online or call the sea landing.
