|MPA Baseline Monitoring Meetings|
During the week of March 20-24, local ocean community members are invited to attend a series of community gatherings held throughout the South Coast region (Pt. Conception to the California/Mexico border, including offshore islands). Join us to learn about key findings from marine protected area (MPA) baseline monitoring and participate in decision making about our ocean.
Each event will be free and open to the public, bringing together fishermen, California tribes and tribal communities, researchers, citizen scientists, educators, and others interested in monitoring, evaluation, and adaptive management of California’s MPAs and marine resources.
We need all Fishermen to attend these meetings to not only find out what’s going on, but to let our voices be heard. We need Fishermen to get involved in the process. Click on the flyer for larger version.
|Battle of the Bays|
Battle of the Bays is coming! Get your kayak and your friends together and sign up for either the Mission Bay or Santa Monica Bay event. There will be lots of great fishing and fish stories to be told. Bragging rights are still up for grabs. Don’t wait to sign up!
|365 Fishing License|
|CCA CAL has been a big proponent of a fishing license good for 12 months from date of purchase or 365 license. This week, California Sportfishing League (CSL) published this: California’s “annual” fishing license is the most expensive in the country, and it is NOT valid for a full 12-months from the date of purchase. If state legislators don’t hear from you, they will not reform a failed system. Please Click here to sign the petition|
