The South Coast BRTF met October 20-22, 2009, to review three marine protected area (MPA) proposals, including Proposal 2, to be forwarded to the FGC for consideration during its December meeting in Los Angeles.
The action of the BRTF flies in the face California residents' ability to access our state's coastal waters and prime fishing grounds," said Paul Lebowitz, director, Kayak Fishing Association of California, regional stakeholder group member and PSO member.
As this BRTF creation moves to the FGC, the PSO will continue to support Proposal 2.
CSR's ability to act as a BRTF means that it can maintain closer control of test procedures and provide a faster and more flexible approach, passing on the benefits of agility and cost savings to its customers.
BRTF status requires adherence to strict qualification criteria, and is awarded to companies that have achieved expert status in Bluetooth technologies.
