Indicator Status and Trends
We evaluate the status of the California Current Ecosystem by interpreting a variety of environmental, biological, economic, and social indicators. Current and historical indicator data are organized categorically, below, with a graphic showing the most recent 5-year trend and status relative to the long-term mean; the graphical interface allows for dynamic plotting and data download options. Many of these indicators are presented to the Pacific Fishery Management Council in annual status reports.
All California Current ESR indicator data is served from the NMFS/SWFSC oceanview ERDDAP server, which provides a simple, consistent way to download subsets of scientific datasets in common file formats and make graphs and maps. Detailed instructions for how to access and use these data are included at this link.
