      Hello all,
      I received an email from Jerry Kashiwada of the California Department of Fish and Game and they will be doing a new Creel Survey in April, May and June. It is a good way to get up on the Northern Coast and help record the number of abalone being taken.  If you have never done it is quite easy. 
      Taken from the Flyer Below
      Thank you,
      Dennis Belcher

      The Abalone Project needs help in covering up to 10 abalone creel sites for 2 days in each of 3 months this Spring.  This is a great opportunity for volunteers to experience first-hand one of the most popular recreational fisheries in California and have some time to visit the north coast.  Participants will be interviewing abalone fishermen at traditional creel sites and will not be involved with enforcing fishing regulations.  Non-biological staff and non-Department volunteers are welcome to help.  Dates selected this year are April 26 & 27 (Fridays and Saturdays); May 26, 27 & 28 (Memorial Day weekend - Sunday, Monday, Tuesday); and June 23 & 24 (Sunday & Monday).  People can sign up for single days and three days were selected in May in case people have problems working on the holiday.  Some travel expenses and pay for Scientific Aids from other projects can be covered.  Because of budget concerns, travel expenses covered by abalone funds will be limited.  We will cover lodging costs up to a total of $168 (but no more than $84 per night) plus taxes and three days per diem.  Airfare will not be covered.  Private car mileage can be claimed for up to 200 miles.
      Sites include Shelter Cove (southern Humboldt County), Hardy Creek, MacKerricher State Park, Van Damme State Park, Arena Cove, Moat Creek (Mendocino County), Salt Point and Fort Ross area (Sonoma County, Fort Ross only open in June).  The sampling is done for about 3 ½ hours during morning low tides.  For information on participating with the creel survey contact Jerry Kashiwada at the Fort Bragg Marine Region field office (707) 964-5791.

      We are planning creel surveys again for this year (details in attached file).  I'm not sure yet how many volunteers we will need since the Fort Ross area is closed for the first two months but let me know if you are interested in helping, particularly in June.
