Our specific objectives were to determine 1) whether catch rates of resident Puget Sound groundfishes generally increased through time following the closure of bottom trawl fisheries, 2) the extent to which shifts in this time series may represent population fluctuations or instead represent local effects that result from distribution shifts, 3) whether dynamics are best represented by smooth trends through time or instead though more abrupt state-changes, and 4) whether observed trends in catch rates for resident Puget Sound groundfish populations may be linked to changes in environmental conditions reflected in oceanographic monitoring data.
Sub-mixed-layer temperature is indicative of the thermal habitat experienced by groundfishes.
Also, the opening of the bottom trawl was small and, therefore, likely had low selectivity for large-size groundfishes (e.
