Grunions are a marine fish found only along the southern California coast and northern Baja California, most famous for their unique spawning behavior. During our grunion runs, we try to observe this spawning behavior from shore and even attempt to catch some grunion in the process! Closed season runs from April 1 through June 30 of this year (2022), observe and conserve only during this time.

Grunions will return in March 2023 when the season starts. Check back here for details.
