RE: Proposed Harbor Craft Engine Emission Regulations/Commercial Passenger Vessels

Dear Madam Chair,

As you may know, California has over 2 million anglers. While this number is significant, it is offset by the reality that saltwater fishing is a subset of this number and according to the U.S.

Census California’s fishing participation rate (per capita) has dropped to dead last in the Nation. Moreover, according to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s (CDFW) sales reports, annual fishing license sales have declined by more than 50% since the early 1980s, as the

State’s population grew by over 60%.
