    Sounds like a lot of better information came out of this.

    Commercial bottom trawling is not allowed in California? Can anyone tell me if that is the case?

    This certainly isn't positive news. Bottom trawls are one of the most destructive forms of commercial fishing.

    Not that long lines are that much better but at the minimum, they don't destroy habitats.

    :profile:

    Year round rock fish, probably not, but rumors are that they will change depth limits. I made a thread about it a while ago.

    Not sure I understand the need to reduce Lings to 1. There doesn't seem to be any down cycle to them off the central coast. Lots of lings to be had.

    The california regs are based off NOAA reccomendations. Some of the changes listed deal with Oregon and Washington.

    Even their own studies from 2016 and 2017 say lings are not overfished, so not sure why. Will definitely increase the population though as fast as they reproduce.

    From what I read, it was because the species is believed to be in a down cycle. It's not over fished, it's just not reproducing well due to the warm water the last few years.

    There's a cost to all this tuna.

    there was 2 parts to that:

    (4) South of 34°27′ N lat. (Southern Management Area), recreational fishing for California scorpionfish is open from January 1 through December 31.



    (B) Bag limits, hook limits. South of 40°10.00′ N lat., in times and areas where the recreational season for California scorpionfish is open there is a limit of 2 hooks and 1 line, the bag limit is 5 California scorpionfish per day. California scorpionfish do not count against the 10 RCG Complex fish per day limit. Multi-day limits are authorized by a valid permit issued by California and must not exceed the daily limit multiplied by the number of days in the fishing trip.
