Thank you for the news. The environment must be protected for the sake of the planet, but perhaps the community can find another solution.

Marine reserves have been shown to increase available fish and creatures outside the reserve boundaries: but local fisherfolk need access to the resource somewhere.

Good news. Marine reserves are good, and the world needs more of them.
