Marine Life Protection Act

Marine Life Protection Act

From Brandi:

For those who have been appointed stakeholders in this process, you know first hand this is NOT an easy task!  I don’t think anyone could have forewarned me the magnitude of how political and time consumptive this process is. You get to a point where you don’t know where the politics stop and the truth begins. You are inundated with mounds of written and verbal information, emails, meetings, sub-meetings, homework groups, public outreach, phone conferences, webinars, etc. It is a blend of new friendships, old friendships being strengthened, old friendships being tested, your diving activity being compromised, personal and professional lives being compromised, all while embracing the most complex balancing act of politics, socio-economic impacts and the MLPA-Initiative. Even with all of the NCRSG coming to agreement with one unified proposal recommendation, it is still an unknown what the BRTF will recommend to the DFG Commission come January 2011.

Our proposal will be on marine map http://northcoast.marinemap.org/ for the public to view September 16th.

The NCRSG will join the Blue Ribbon Task Force (BRTF) meeting October 27-29 in Fortuna to present our proposal. I encourage all to watch via webcast or attend. http://www.dfg.ca.gov/mlpa/meetings_n.asp#brtf

I very much appreciate everyone’s support and input through out this process.  Without all of you, I don’t think I could have done it alone. THANK YOU!

Safe diving everyone,

Brandi
