CDFW requires all anglers, even young ones, to have a spiny lobster report card in their hold while fishing for or making lobster. The placards must be reported even if no lobsters were taken or no tries were made to take lobsters.

If multiple spiny lobster report cards were purchased, all placards, including lost placards, should be reported to avoid the $ 20 non-return fee when purchasing a spiny lobster report card next lobster fish season.

According to CDFW, unlike commercial-grade catch, the department had very little reliable information on the magnitude of the recreational lobster catch and fishing sector prior to the opening of the lobster report card.

“Data from these report card allow us to determine if catch is increasing or abridging, the number of members of lobsters caught per fishing trip, and which gear character is the most efficient, ” CDFW Marine Environmental Scientist Jenny Hofmeister said in a liberated proclamation. “All these portions of information help managers monitor the population. Everyone benefits from reporting your catch on time. Lobster divers and hoop netters avoid paying the non-return fee, and, most importantly, CDFW scientists can ensure the fishery remains sustainable.”
