  • The California Cooperative Sardine Research Program was originally designed as a joint effort by Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the California Department of Fish and Game, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the California Academy of Sciences to study the behavior and environmental conditions that effected sardine populations off Southern California after the collapse of the sardine fisheries in the late 1940s.
  • Currently, the program combines the efforts and funding of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the California Department of Fish and Game, NOAA Southwest Fisheries Science Center, and CCE-LTER. Quarterly cruises collect hydrographic and biological data from the 75 station pattern and the 113 station pattern.
