Then why are the fish bigger and more numerous in no-take zones?

No-take zones don't apply to sea lions. If the sea lions are
the cause of the reduction in fish, why are the fish bigger and
more numerous in no-take zones like Pt. Lobos, where there are
sea lions, but (at least in theory), no fishermen.

Also, that was 300,000-400,000 California sea lions off US shores,
NOT 300,000-400,000 in California, which would be one every nine
to eleven feet along the coast of California.
