This report is an interesting topic that addresses the ideas of regulations that I have recently learned about. In the eyes of the sport fishers, the regulations placed by the MLPA are not making it easy to maintain a business with the current recession. Whereas, the MLPA are doing their best to impose boundaries off the shores of La Jolla that are “off limits” to help maintain habitats found in the kelp forests. Reading this article I see that the MLPA is trying to implement policies that will improve these kelp forest and fish habitats. However, I do not feel that the sport fishers are rebelling against these restrictions but rather introducing the idea of the hardship it brings on them. There are costs from implementing any type of regulation, and in this case the sport fishers are feeling the blunt of them. I think this article could have better described the benefits the MLPA plan on seeing by imposing these types of restrictions.
