Despite intense opposition from many fishermen, California wildlife regulators are creating the nation's most extensive network of "marine protected areas"—stretches of ocean where fishing will be banned or severely restricted. The first chain of refuges, covering some 200 square miles and stretching from Santa Barbara to Half Moon Bay, just south of San Francisco, is due to take effect early next year. The state plans similar protected zones along the more intensely fished coasts of northern and southern California. Conservationists say such networks are a new approach to saving the oceans from overfishing. They believe California's plan could serve as a model for other states and countries.
