Ukiah Daily Journal - Chesbro: Make communities equal partners in MLPA process


More From Jim on the MLPA.

"At recent meetings in coastal Mendocino County, fishers, seaweed harvesters and divers, side-by-side with local restaurateurs and retailers, were united against research they suspect is questionable, that's being used to implement the MLPA.
Many coastal residents who earn their living from the ocean say the process is skewed because it does not take into account the economic impact of setting aside coastal areas for protection. Also they say there are missed habitats, possible favoritism, and, that the study is just generally inadequate"

 I totally agree, My two cents is that they are jumping the gun before researching all the effects on the coastal living
