•Data for British Columbia were supplied by the Canadian Bureau of Statistics and the Province of British Columbia, those for Washington by the Washington Department of
Fisheries and for Oregon by the Fish Commission of Oregon. Tonnages delivered to the floating plants were compiled by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service from the
books of the companies operating off the California coast. California landings were derived from the records of the California Department of Fish and Game.

The commercial catch of king and silver salmon in California has not been sep-
arated. Occasional samples and partial separation for a few areas are available
for a few years. The recent samples indicate that the silver salmon constituted
about 9 percent by weight of the ocean catch in 1939-1942. Silver salmon are not
taken by the Sacramento-San Joaquin fishery.
'Eel. Klamath, .Mad and Smith Rivers were closed to commercial fishing in 1934.
