Add comment on:Scripps study: Two key southern California fisheries collapse
A new Scripps study has found that two key Southern California fisheries--kelp bass and barred sand bass--have declined by 90% in the past 20 years, continuing an alarming trend that has seen other targeted species like cowcod, sheepshead and halibut dwindling in the region. One proven way to rebuild fisheries is protecting the places where fish feed and breed, and California is working to do just that through the Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA).
