California Fishing Ban: State approves marine reserves to restore fish

A new plan to ban or severely limit fishing in 18 percent of ocean waters along California's Central Coast is being hailed by some as one of the most significant marine protection measures in decades. By creating 29 marine reserves, the state hopes to restore fish, sea otters, and other wildlife out to three miles offshore, while not bankrupting the fishing industry. Anglers are not so sure it will accomplish the latter goal, however, as the total amount of protected waters is significantly more than what fishermen argued for.
