What is a MPA?
r A Marine Protected Area (MPA) is an area of the ocean where consumptive human activities such as fishing are limited or restricted in order to protect or conserve marine life or habitats. On land, we have National Parks, National Forests, Reserves, etc. Marine Protected Areas provide similar
r protection to small areas in the ocean.The main purpose of MPA Watch is
r to conduct outreach to local fisherman, boaters, and watersports enthusiasts about the new boundaries and restrictions and to gather data on the trends of boating and fishing in and around the Los Angeles County Marine Protected Areas.
r Waterkeeper’s MPA Watch Trips run about 4-5 hours. We travel from Marina Del Rey to the Point Vicente and Abalone Cove MPAs in Palos Verdes or to the Point Dume MPAs in Malibu. MPA Watch Boat Trips are scheduled on our Calendar at
