Description
Abstract: 1. Hake (Merluccius sp.) have been actively harvested commercially in many areas of the world since at least early in the nineteenth century. Utilized both for human consumption and industrial uses, they have been the subject of regulatory management to prevent over-exploitation in Europe, South Africa, and South America (Grinols and Tilman, 1970). Until recently, however, the abundance of hake off the west coast of the United States has been considered a nuisance. Catches were incidental to other fish and Pacific hake (M. productus) were rarely used for human consumption. Attempts from 1965 to 1967 to establish a large reduction fishery off the Washington coast failed despite superior extraction techniques when industry could not provide adequate profit incentive to entice fishermen from other proven, more profitable summer fisheries. The availability of Pacific hake has been demonstrated by a large Soviet trawl fleet which has taken about 150,000 tons annually since 1966. 2. For several consecutive years, fishermen actively engaged in salmon fishing in Puget Sound at West Beach reported the presence of a large concentration of herring Clupea pallasii Valenciennes. Echograms verified the reports and showed commercial quantities of herring in an area extending from Deceptinn Pass south to Pt . Partridge along the west shore of Whidbey Island (Figure 1). Fishermen requested a herring season in this area by purse seine gear for all-purpose use, including reduction. At the time, this area had a fishing season for herring restricted to use as bait or human consumption. The lack of information regarding this stock of herring prompted a tagging study to obtain knowledge of the migration and distribution pattern of these fish.
