Fukuto Needs You Thursday
Steve Fukuto, president of United Anglers of Southern California and a PSO member. "The PSO has repeatedly expressed our concerns regarding the lack of scientific data and guidance from the BRTF, as well as the blind adherence to an arbitrary timeline," continued Doerr. "The blatant bias shown after the most recent RSG meeting is the latest example of how the South Coast process has gone awry, and it is also the incident of greatest concern for the recreational fishing and boating communities."

"As the process of deciding what portions of California's coastline will be designated as MPAs, and therefore off-limits for recreational fishing, the parameters keep changing." Doerr further said, "Repeated requests from the PSO and numerous other stakeholder groups to slow down the implementation process and address the very real issues of future funding and better scientific data, have fallen on deaf ears."
