Recreational fishermen know all about gill nets. They call them indiscriminate, wasteful killers of marine life. They claim that gill nets deplete the sea of mammals, birds--and of the fish the anglers like to catch. To these fishermen, a law banning their use is the answer. Commercial fishermen use gill nets to make a living or supplement their income. They consider the nets to be highly efficient, but there is a sense of discomfort about the controversy over their use.

Its campaign budget was small and its target narrow. And to add to the enigma, the author of the only environmental initiative to capture the hearts and votes of Californians on Tuesday wasn't even an environmentalist, but a Republican assemblywoman from conservative Orange County. Proposition 132, a modest measure that prohibits fishermen from using gill nets in California waters, passed, with 55.5% of the vote.
