Marine Protected Areas

leave a comment »

I’m thinking as important as it is for us to profile fishermen who are doing the right thing by the ocean, our episode on fish should include discussion of marine protected areas, vast undersea sanctuaries where there is no fishing at all. Of course fishing isn’t the only pressure fisheries face (runoff, damns, dumping, and other man-made impacts play a huge role) but I’d interested to know the ocean regenerates when we all fishing stops.
