The California Sardine and its Fishery


    THE California sardine (Sardinops ccerulea) is caught by small motor-boats using purse-seines and round-haul nets with large bunts, called 'lamparas'. The fishery takes place in autumn and winter. The California State Fisheries Laboratory has recently added two more papers to the series of studies of this fishery.
