The Partnership for Sustainable Oceans is urging California residents to support recreational fishing and boating opportunities by sending a letter to the California Fish and Game Commission in support of Proposal 2XA.

At its May 13-14 meeting, the commission will begin taking public comment on the proposals that will establish marine protected areas in the north-central coast under the state's Marine Life Protection Act.

The partnership, which represents the interests of recreational anglers and boaters, is supporting Proposal 2XA as the preferred alternative for the north-central coast. It places marine protected areas in locations with a high level of conservation while minimizing the economic impact on local communities, and still allows anglers maximum access to fishing.

Right now, the commission is poised to adopt a proposal that closes 13 percent of the North Coast Study region to recreational fishing.

The commission plans to vote in August on which proposal to adopt.
