California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigation

Data Center Description
The California Oceanic Cooperative Fisheries Investigations
(CalCOFI) are a unique partnership of the California Department
of Fish and Game, the NOAA Fisheries Service and the Scripps
Institution of Oceanography. The organization was formed in 1949
to study the ecological aspects of the collapse of the sardine
populations off California. Today its focus has shifted to the
study of the marine environment off the coast of California and
the management of its living resources. The organization hosts
an annual conference, publishes data reports and a scientific
journal and maintains a publicly accessible data server.
