CALIFORNIA: ACSF Opposes Sanctuary Expansion of Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary

October 5, 2012 — The Alliance of Communities for Sustainable Fisheries (ACSF), formed  in 2000 to represent the commercial and recreational fishing interests  of the six harbor communities in the central coast of California, released a statement opposing the expansion of the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary.

The ACSF’s letter of opposition explains why regional fishermen oppose expansion of the Sanctuary and believe that it should instead focus on improving its governance and community relations.
