2018 Abalone Fishing Changes
On October 11-12, 2017, in Atascadero, there was a meeting and discussions of proposed changes to recreational abalone regulations for 2018 by the Fish & Game Commission (FGC), the Department of Fish & Wildlife (DFW), and interested public members.
o FGC Staff: Adopt DFW's recommendation to close the recreational abalone fishery, consistent with the ARMP and DFW's findings.
o DFW Staff: DFW recommends Option 1, to close the recreational abalone fishery. This recommendation is consistent with the ARMP and reflects evidence that the fishery is unsustainable and in rapid decline.
An Adoption Hearing on the proposed changes will be held December 6-7, 2017 in San Diego.
