This report documents the data and methods of estimation used in estimating the economic impact of commercial fishing catch from all four National Marine Sanctuaries in California on local county economies in terms of harvest revenue received by fishermen and the associated economic impacts, including multiplier impacts, on total output, value added, income and the number of full- and part-time jobs.
This report is part of a series of reports meeting the priorities in the “Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) West Coast Region Socioeconomic Plan FY 2013 – FY 2014” and “national program priorities” on establishing the connection between sanctuary resource uses and local, regional and national economies. This report documents how economic impact estimates were made for the commercial fisheries in all four California National Marine Sanctuaries (NMS); Cordell Bank, Channel Islands, Gulf of the Farallones, and Monterey Bay.
