A few emailed me and said they had trouble opening the link to California Sea Grant which was http://repositories.cdlib.org/csgc/rcr/Coastal04_02/ . If not able to open the links, follow the titles below to the web and print them out for your reading enjoyment. Maybe enjoy is not the right work. This is serious stuff. Despite what MLPA opponents say there has been considerable erosion of our biomass and diversity in the nearshore habitats that are the subject of the MLPA.

Sliding Baselines, Ghosts, and reduced Expectations in Kelp Forest Communities
Marine Reserve Design, Optimal Design, Size, Habitats, Species, Affinities, Diversity, and Ocean Microclimate
How are the following doing?
What about fish?
California Sheephead (Especially Male Sheephead on Catalina) Lingcod, Cabezon, Leopard and Angel Sharks and the nearshore large rockfish?
Lets keep the focus on the Local nearshore and avoid the tired misleading tactics of irrelevant species.
