The live fish trappers went through the Southern bight and literallly WIPED out the entire shallow water rockfish populations, taking the great kelp forests with them...

It is very good to know that the SWRF are finally making a comeback.

Thank you very much for posting those pictures, they give me hope~! i hope you will continue to share your pictures with us--SWRF are the bellweather specie for our shared waters--

I just got back from Nic--toughest run back in YEARS! On the nose for 75nm...Bad vis at the island. Uneventful except for the pups playing in the luminescence--fascinating~!
