"When the the difference
How big is Point Lobos compared to the rest of the coast line? How much biomass does that contribute? Would it be nice if the fishing regulations are made more sensical and there is money in enforcement (and water quality remedy) so the remaining 80% of the coastline is also healthy? That's where the money should go.
The MPA is about increasing biodiversity and restoring stocks. You didn't answer my question about salmon because the answer is the Marine Protection Act couldn't protect the salmon in any case. And I wouldn't be dancing about anchoring and power-boating in reserves just yet. If the activity disturbs marine mammal feeding/sleeping/foraging, then it is against the spirit of a reserve. Zipping through a kelp bed with an outboard or tossing an anchor and chain will provide ammo for injuction one day in reserves. Not from DFG, but from some outside environmental group. Why wouldn't they?
