Hi all --
Right now the state of California is considering setting aside a marine protected area of the Southern coast. Marine protected areas are special zones with restrictions on harmful activities like bottom trawling and other industrial fishing practices. Their aim to to help the ocean recover from overfishing.
There are 2 ways you can help make it happen:
Email the commission in charge in favor of strong regulation:
The public comment period runs until Thursday.
Or, if you live in the Long Beach area, you can come to the hearing yourself on Thursday!
