Here in Washington they are trying very hard to restore salmon habitat. Especially estuaries where the little guys and gals need a place to grow to a size that can survive the ocean.
Those areas were diked and drained for farmland many years ago. I'm sure there still was plenty of salmon back then.
The estuaries are recovering well. It will take many years to fully recover. But it's a start.:coolup:

The White Seabass and Halibut fisheries in So Cal have shown great improvement in the past few years because of netting regulations. Also, as much as I was against them to start with the Marine Protected Areas around the Channel Islands are doing great things for the bottom fishing in those areas. I just wish some of the science would make its way to the Sea of Cortez.

No doubt. It can be done. I've been diving at Catalina in and near the preserves.
The number and size of the fish and lobsters is amazing. Calicos as big as a 15 pound grouper. Lobsters 2 feet long.
Whereas before the same boat would hit the same rock pile every day and catch the same fish until the were finally keeper size.
Pitiful.

Recent headlines in OR/WA (should add WA/ID as well) regarding tough times for salmon. Baja is not alone in mismanagement of fish stocks.
