Diver convicted of poaching lobsters in marine reserve
Dan Bacher
While a poacher was fined over $20,000 and sentenced to a week in jail for poaching 47 lobsters inside a "marine protected area," the state and federal governments are allowed to kill tens of millions of fish every year with impunity in order to export massive amounts of Delta water to wealthy corporate agribusiness interests on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley and southern California water agencies. There is no "Wild Justice" for the millions of Sacramento splittail, striped bass, threadfin shad, Central Valley salmon and other species massacred in the state and federal Delta pumps every year.
