Description
Addition to the records of the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI). Materials include reports, documentation and data collected during CalCOFI's quarterly cruises from 1972-1974 & 1983-2004. Early materials document drift bottle studies from 1963-1982.
Background
In 1949, the California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI) was formed to study the ecological aspects of the sardine population collapse off the coast of southern California. The effort, originally called the California Cooperative Sardine Research Program, was designed as a joint effort by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the California Department of Fish and Game, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the California Academy of Sciences. CalCOFI, still in operation, conducts quarterly cruises to collect hydrographic and biological data off the coast of southern and central California.
