Boerner Horvath’s Bill to Ensure Sustainable Fishing Moves Forward

Thursday, May 14, 2020

SACRAMENTO - Assemblymember Boerner Horvath’s bill to strengthen the structure of the marine hatchery program in Carlsbad, AB 1949, was unanimously approved by the Assembly Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee.

The primary hatchery facility for the Ocean Resources Enhancement and Hatchery Program (OREHP) activities is the Leon Raymond Hubbard Jr. Marine Fish Hatchery in Carlsbad. The Carlsbad hatchery is the only marine fish hatchery in the state conducting research on marine species, their habitats and their survivability at a time when climate change severely strains the world’s oceans. AB 1949 ensures that the legacy of sustainability-based hatchery management can continue in coastal North County.

“I am proud to continue the good work of former State Senator Dede Alpert in support of the marine fish hatchery. The goal of this bill is to implement sound recommendations to ensure sustainable fishing,” said Boerner Horvath. “The program was established to evaluate the economic and ecological feasibility of releasing hatchery-reared fish to restore depleted, native, marine fish populations.”

Statement from Assemblymember Boerner Horvath on the Phase II Reopening of the California Economy

Tuesday, May 5, 2020
SACRAMENTO — Assemblymember Boerner Horvath issued the following statement in response to the Governor’s announcement on the Stage Two reopening of the California Economy set to begin later this week:
 
“Based on the most recent numbers, we’ve made enough progress in our regional battle to curb the spread of COVID-19 in California that it is now possible to begin a thoughtful, data-driven, and phased reopening of our state’s economy.
 
While there are still a decent number of patients being treated for COVID-19 in San Diego County as a whole, the numbers remain low in Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, and Camp Pendleton. This success is largely due to the vast majority of people complying with our state’s stay-at-home order designed to keep people safe and save lives.
