Every Little Bit Counts
Once again California sets the example for the rest of us clots. Having the guts to stand up to the fishing fleet, California regulators have put in place America's most extensive range of marine sanctuaries where fishing will be outlawed. They mean business. Some of the areas designated as marine protected zones overlap with some of the state's most productive fishing zones. What's the logic behind that? Sounds like they want to protect the areas were the fish are. Hmm, go figure. Conservationists hope California's programme will serve as a model for other states and countries. Let's hope.
