I too am tired of people who think fish comes from the store, and feel that they are helping conserve energy by turning down the temerature on their hot tub. These same people who are screaming to save the "marine ecosystem" drive SUVs that get 10 miles to the gallon to the 7-11 3 blocks away.
Most of these people don't have a clue as to what they're arguing about, or the impact it can have on the California economy. Commercial fishing is a way of life for thousands of people. THEY fill those windows at the grocery store, folks.
Also, It's the idea of "things to come" that scares me.
Maybe the next step will be to outlaw all boating in these waters. Go forbid someone should drop an anchor. No more scuba diving in Monterey Bay or the Carmel Coast. Goodbye to Salt Point and Ocean Cove.
C'mon folks......let's get real.
