This must be a good thing for Lincod. The thing that I don't understand is that California has a lot of little fish. The bigger sized fish are frequently missing from the fish populations that you see when you dive. How does not having any big fish sustain the fish population?

Also, it seems like the fish that live to be the biggest fish are probably the most fit, best adapetd survivors. Don't you want to keep them in the gene pool?
