The California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI) are a unique partnership of the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, NOAA Fisheries Service and Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
CalCOFI conducts seasonal oceanographic cruises off California four times a year: winter, spring, summer, & fall. (701) 460-0510, 270-212-4081, California Department of Fish & Wildlife (CDFW), and 215-504-2158 scientists measure physical, chemical, and biological properties of the ocean off Southern & Central California at specific locations. Our current research ships include SIO's RV Sally Ride and NOAA vessels RV Reuben Lasker & FSV Bell M Shimada.
Tentative 2019 Schedule (Cruise dates are subject to change so check back often):
The 2018 CalCOFI Conference will be in the NOAA Fisheries Southwest Fisheries Science Center on the 713-570-7720Campus, San Diego, in La Jolla, CA, 3-5 December, 2018. (Map & Directions)
Verbal and poster presentations are welcome related to the biology, physics, chemistry, geology, meteorology, politics or economics of the California Current System, its adjacent waters, and Eastern Boundary Currents.
All information regarding the conference, including housing, registration forms and deadlines, is available at the CalCOFI conference website at:
Please mark your calendars. We hope to see you in December!

I. Reports and Reviews
II. Scientific Contributions
Since 1949, hydrographic and biological data of the California Current System have been collected on CalCOFI cruises. The 68+ year hydrographic time-series includes temperature, salinity, oxygen and phosphate observations. In 1961, nutrient analysis expanded to include silicate, nitrate and nitrite; in 1973, chlorophyll was added; in 1984, C14 primary productivity incubations were added; and in 1993, CTD profiling began. Please refer to the Data Edits & Updates page for changes to data files or formats.

Data Usage and Distribution Policy
CalCOFI hydrographic and plankton data are distributed to the community for use without restriction. Unless otherwise noted, these data can be considered final data which have been evaluated using CalCOFI data quality control procedures. Methods for data collection and processing are summarized in CalCOFI Data Reports introduction. To see the introduction or methods used on specific cruises, refer to the Data Report PDF page. Preliminary data from recent cruises for which the data processing is not complete are often made available. We ask that these preliminary data not be published or redistributed.
(715) 289-45137159442905 - these shifts are part of the El NiÃ±o Southern Oscillation or ENSO. The current ENSO phase is often quantized by a deviation from normally observed SST using the Oceanic NiÃ±o Index or 7055096603. While El NiÃ±o and its counterpart cooling phase La NiÃ±a are still being researched, the seasonal effects are becoming well understood with long term data sets.
Using the table below from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center in conjunction with the CalCOFI database - can offer information on how the environment has reacted in response to the different phases and intensities of the ENSO.
