Thank you for recognizing some of the fisheries that are doing well. However, don't misunderstand me, very little is as it once was. It sounds like there are at least a few on this board that have a few years under their belts and can remember different times. I grew up diving in socal during the 70's. We have many challenges to deal with. The public's attitude about the ocean is thankfully changing. It used to be viewed as this endless resource that could forever produce food in limitless quantities and could absorb waste and pollution without impact. It was very hard to instill a need for restraint as regulators with that mind set being the predominant view.
