The Groundfish Analysis Team (GAT) is a team of biologists and statisticians that develops life history studies and fisheries stock assessments for rockfishes in the California Current, in cooperation with researchers from the California Department of Fish and Game and the University of California Santa Cruz. We are currently engaged in a process of recovering spatially explicit catch data for California fisheries from the late 1920s through the late 1960s. This position will include responsibility for management and analysis of these, and likely other, fisheries data. Overarching objectives include the need to better understand spatial patterns of fisheries development and activities over time. Results from this program are intended to benefit stock assessment biologists and resource managers. This is currently anticipated to be a one year appointment, extended if possible, subject to the availability of funds.
