Channel Islands "No Take Zones"
Leaders from the California Department of Fish and Game and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary have joined forces on the issue of "no take zones" by closing 20 percent around portions of the five Channel Islands falling within the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary (San Miguel, Santa Rosa, Santa Cruz, Anacapa and Santa Barbara Islands).
Examining feasibility and practicality by forming a Sanctuary Advisory Council made up of representatives of various user groups, both commercial and recreational. Sport divers, however, are poorly represented on this council.
Make your opinions known, first visit Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary web site at www.cinms.nos.noaa.gov and look into "Marine Reserves" and other current news.
