The rules need to be changed why?? I think the DFG and the legislature need to put more resources into fixing the habitat issues that have gotten the salmon fishery into its current state. What are the MLPA supporters doing about that? Salmon don't qualify as marine life? Those PR shots of dumping more fingerlings into the bay is not going to fix the problem. Doing more to fix the salmon fishery will balance out the high pressure that is focusing on the halibut fishery. Stripers? They are a non native species and thus should be the last thing that gets attention.
The MLPA will put into no-take reserves major portions of SF Bay after the North Coast. SoCal is beginning right now, then the North Coast, and then SF Bay.nelsjohnson said:http://www.marinij.com/marinnews/ci_9494136?IADID=Search-www.marinij.com-www
