"It's not just about fishing, but many human activities have been banned under the MLPA Initiative in California, like kayaking, sailing and other non-fishing activities," Martin said. "As fishermen we're angry about being labeled the problem when big corporations like Safeway and Hewlett-Packard refuse to join us in calling for less water diversions to agribusiness and less heavy metals from the semiconductor industry in San Francisco Bay," Martin added, calling recreational fishermen "the original conservationists" as evidenced by their frequent calls for stronger fishery management and habitat conservation.
