That post epitomizes the mentality of the Me First! generation. That pernicious brand of self-entitlement is EXACTLY what drove the need for the reserves in the first place, though they will never see it that way....

Our generation has seen (and taken!) the biggest and the best that these waters will ever have to offer. It is morally just that WE accept these measures and that we do so with grace and gratitude for what we have been privileged to experience over the years.

Anyone with any experience over the last 20 years simply cannot deny that there has been a precipitous decline of virtually every shallow water specie, everywhere. Any argument against the reserves is nothing but a defacto argument to continue the depletion.

The good people who turned the concept of the reserves into a reality are to be commended for having the guts and foresight to take decisive action on behalf of those who do not yet have a voice, but who will someday yearn to see the beauty....

that once was~
