"While the purpose of the reserves is stated as being to prevent the collapse of local fish populations (actually to keep them healthy),"
Yes, agreed. That is THE purpose of the reserves.
"as a diver, I have to think of the value of what the preserves would offer to myself and others, especially new divers."
That's really unimportant to the purpose. Now who is being childish?
"Also I could again see vibrant lush reefs without having to travel to the outer islands or to the North Coast to see some remote, hidden reef."
Why is it that these remote reefs are so lush and the reef you normally visit aren't? Is is anchor and chain damage? Dive damage? Helicopter gyro damage? You tell me.
