Jimmy TH: There's good news about the effectiveness of marine protected areas in helping rebuild fish populations,

California's creating a statewide network of protected areas. Coupled with the sustainable fishing bill, there are reasons to be hopeful.


Good that something is being tried, but the time to institute sustainable fishing was when the fisheries were still healthy. Usually we don't take steps until fisheries have crashed, and populations don't always recover even with protection.

good to hear! I'm glad the ocean is getting some love.

Thank you for your comments requesting more information. I have added a new link to the bill text, and a short video that explains they key components. Alison, Monterey Bay Aquarium


Can someone explain the law and what it does?


It'd be nice if you had a sentence or two explaining what exactly the bill does... I read your email on my cell phone, and it was a bit of a pain to figure this out.
