A new report from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife warns that a new study suggests that certain marine life species in the state cannot be eaten.
The California Marine Life Center said in a news release Wednesday that the report “finds that there are a small number of species that have been successfully reintroduced to the Gulf of Alaska in California.”
The organization says it has “confirmed some species are returning to the ocean,” but not all of them.
The report states that some of the species are more susceptible to diseases and stress than others, and some of them are listed as endangered.
It says the research showed that a variety of species are still under threat from pollution, overfishing and climate change.
It also notes that California is currently at risk of losing all of its fish stocks, and that many are being destroyed due to overfished, over-exploited and polluted waters.
A spokesman for the department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
