This morning the California Fish and Game Commission conducted an emergency remote meeting to hear comments on potential plans to allow CDFW to temporarily delay, restrict or suspend fisheries were needed to prevent the spread of coronavirus. This is part 1 of a 3 part series.

Don’t panic! Per CDFW Director Charlton H. Bonham:

“I understand Californians desperately need the outdoors for solace, reinvigoration and spirituality, especially so right now,”

“The proposal was never about a statewide permanent closure. It is about being responsive to local needs in this public health emergency, where we must do all we can as Californians to help each other make it through this together. We intend to use this authority surgically and based on local needs and knowledge.”
