  The other primary data source for the current study was an electronic bathymetric chart of the sea floor off Oregon and Washington. The Active Tectonics and Seafloor Mapping Laboratory at Oregon State University provided these data in the form of high-resolution latitude and longitude coordinates for the m depth contours ( m, m, etc.) (e.g., Fig. 1).Cited by: ().

UN FAO data shows that deep-sea bottom trawls — fishing 1, feet below the ocean's surface and deeper — caught 14 million tons of fish between and. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife encourages the public to report possible invasive species. You can report non-native, invasive species through the Washington Invasive Species Council.

  Foreword. This chapter presents an updated overview of the scallop fisheries and aquaculture on the west coast of North America. It is an update of the early editions of Lauzier and Bourne () and Bourne ().The weathervane scallop is the main species captured in Alaska and other species of lesser economic importance such as the ‘Pacific’ scallop, rock scallop, spiny, and .   Large-scale distant-water trawl fisheries on seamounts.

Groundfish essential fish habitat, Rockfish Conservation Area modifications, and Magnuson-Stevens Act discretionary closures Amendment 28 includes a new configuration of areas closed to bottom trawling to protect essential fish habitat (EFH); it removes the trawl rockfish conservation area off Oregon and California; and it includes a deep water closure of groundfish bottom contact fishing in [ ].

One of my favorite documents is the “Analysis and History of the Oregon Otter-Trawl Fishery,” the dissertation by George Yost Harry III, for the School of Fisheries at the University of Washington. It’s filled with interesting bits of information; the first beam trawl was used on the Carrie B. Lake, off the Columbia, in Some of the best fishing opportunities in the nation are available in Washington. From fly-fishing for bass and trout on freshwater lakes and streams east of the Cascades to trolling for salmon along the coast to crabbing in Puget Sound, Washington offers a diverse and unique outdoors experience. Using historical data and estimates from deep-sea trawls that drag nets along the ocean floor, researchers estimate that millions of tons of catch have gone unreported in the last 50 years. Although rex sole are an important species in the commercial trawl fisheries off the U.S. West Coast, knowledge of their reproductive biology is limited to one study off the Oregon coast where.
