Fisheries Special Issue on Citizen Science

From Grunion Greeters in California to OceanEyes monitoring the Hawaiian seafloor and volunteers analyzing historic Florida sportfishing photos, citizen science is a growing part of fisheries conservation and management data collection. A new special issue of Fisheries (free access for two months) includes innovative new ways to engage anglers, commercial fishers, and interested members of the public in fisheries science. Learn how volunteer anglers tag recreationally important fish in Virginia, volunteers monitor horseshoe crab breeding sites in Florida, commercial fishers and seafood producers perform aerial surveys of sardine and anchovy populations in California, and volunteers measure angler satisfaction through surveys and photographs.
