Has everything to do with the warm water. You can catch tuna right off the coast even which only happens during El Nino years. Our water on the North Coast has been incredibly warm this year. The warmest I have seen since I started scuba diving.

The warm water has caused our sea stars to die off by allowing disease, which without sea otters that eat urchins, caused a purple urchin invasion. Between the warm water and urchins 90% of California's kelp is gone which I have seen first hand.

The ocean is changing right before my eyes and NOT in a good way.

Why isn't it a good way? It's nature doing its thing.

Ever eaten abalone? Oh wait, you might have in the past, but man wiped them out of SoCal. Abalone eat kelp, so no kelp means starving abalone, which equals one more fishery closed. No kelp means no safe haven for blues, blacks, china's, vermillion, lingcod...the list goes on and on. The invasive purple urchin are starving and the native reds are starving. Sea otters live in kelp forests. We already have starving sea lions with the highest pup die off last year. Starving seal lions will lead to starving predators.

Remember when you could buy natural salmon at the docks? Those were the days...Thanks goodness for hatcheries or we wouldn't have large salmon runs in NorCal.

Highly recommend you read the book "The Death and Life of Monterey Bay". It is not a political book but a science based book. One of my favorite places to visit both underwater and above water. Last week the blue whales were feeding in the bay which is ultra rare. As soon as the wind and swells die down we are going to go down and spend the night on the boat probably in Still Water Cove Carmel (Pebble Beach Golf Course), and do 4 dives around Carmel, or further South along the remote Big Sur Coast.
