Anacapa Island's Spiny Lobster Fishery Closed

Until further notice, the spiny lobster commercial fishery near Anacapa Island and the east end of Santa Cruz Island is closed due to unhealthy levels of domoic acid, a potent neurotoxin produced by a naturally occurring marine alga. The recreational fishery remains open with a warning to avoid eating lobster viscera.
