for example, the Cowcod closure area is aprox 4,200 Sq miles and was put there for 99 years!
it took 15 years for the swrf populations to START to show some signs of a comeback after they banned commercial fin fishing on the front side of Catalina.
Do this mental exercize: picture if you will, the year 2020 and the DFG decides to allow one day of fishing in what has been a no-take zone for the last 20 years...
where do you think EVERYONE AND HIS THIRD COUSIN WILL BE FISHING THAT DAY?
the recs know the value of no-take zones, despite their insistance that they 'make no sense'..
I have yet to hear an argument against the no-take zones that wasn't based entirely on self-interest.
