Good Fisheries Management is Best For Fish & People

 MPA's are not the best answer

Please see the follwing article by Ray Hilborn, a Professor of Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences at the University of Washington.

He leads several research projects on the status of global fish stocks and coordinates the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database, the largest repository of data on the abundance of fish stocks.

Check out his views:

Our fisheries are impacted by many MPA's. If we drift over the boundary line with gear out because of a mechanical problem let's say, then the ramifications can be very severe. We can lose our boat and/or our license to fish.
MPA's sound good on paper, but they are only one management tool, not an end all.
