Underwater Marine Parks Expand

Marine Protected Areas off the California coast are designed to protect marine wildlife, habitats and ecosystems

The California coast offers its visitors fishing, boating, public beaches, and other fun activities.

Throughout the southern California coastal area, California saw a grand opening of a new series of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). A science-based network, the new MPAs were designed by local fishermen, conservationists, and business leaders to help protect California’s most productive ocean areas while still leaving nearly 90 percent of the coast open for fishing endeavors.
