  •  What about the horrible trawling practices (0+ / 0-)

    going on off our California coast? Does the MLPA Initiative stop that from happening off the California coast?

    You didn't answer this comment when you published basically this same diary on Jan. 1 of this year, so how about answering it this time?

    Do you acknowledge that our coastal waters are grossly overfished (mostly by trawlers who drop huge nets in the water and rake all the fish in that area into their nets - many of which are then thrown away as there isn't a "market" for them). If the initiative at least stops this practice, then it's a first step in the right direction.

    And I'm no fan of Arnie, but I am worried about our quickly shrinking populations of sea life. Hopefully Gov. Brown can grow this initiative in a more inclusive way to eliminate the corporatism currently involved and help sea life reestablish itself.
