Marine Protected Areas: congrats, Surfrider

After two years of planning, the Fish and Game Commission will adopt a network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in Southern California.

MPAs areas act as refuges that allow marine life to replenish fish populations and healthy habitats.

Surfrider has spent the past two years working with diverse stakeholders to help establish MPAs in the region.

Last week, over 700 surfers, students, fishermen, divers, business owners, and elected officials turned out in record numbers to talk ocean protection.

This hearing was the last Fish and Game meeting before the Commission officially adopts a network of MPAs in December.
