Rey, should we educate people what not do in marine habitat?

If one was to sit down a write a formula for success and list all the ingredients for a healthy California Kelp Forest to deep water marine habitat that thrives. Sending in droves of divers with camares and strobes flashing chases and scattering the delicate structure and make up of said habitat while dropping and dragging anchors destroying kelp, invertebrate life and eggs would not be on the menu.

The intelligent thing to do would be to stay out and let nature do it's own repair job which may take some time. Occasionally maybe quarterly or yearly send in a team of PROS who know what they are doing to document, account aqnd photograph the success with the least amount of disruptions and damage.
