New videos on Central Coast’s no-fishing zones

rickbio140Curious about how the Central Coast’s no-fishing zones are working and what scientists have observed since the landmark underwater parks went into effect in 2007?

California Sea Grant’s Rick Starr, a faculty member at Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, has led two monitoring projects for the Central Coast study region, and he recently gave talks on the projects’ highlights at the “State of the California Central Coast” symposium, held earlier this year in Monterey.

In case you missed Rick live, you can now watch him on the OceanSpaces YouTube Channel. Check out his talks on collaborative research with anglers and baseline surveys of deep-water communities in and around the Central Coast’s marine protected areas.


NOAA’s California Sea Grant College Program is a statewide, multi-university program of marine research, extension services, and education activities administered by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. It is one of 33 Sea Grant programs and is part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce.
