Concerned that the abuse of environmental resources has escalated in the past year and a half, the Ventura County Fish and Game Commission on Wednesday approved giving $25,000 to the district attorney's office to resume prosecuting fish and game violations. The action, subject to final approval by county supervisors, would fund the first year of a two-year pilot program that calls for a veteran attorney to devote, virtually full time, to prosecuting fish and game cases.

But supervisors voted 4 to 0 against the request, suggesting instead that further research is needed. Supervisor Frank Schillo was absent.

About 40,000 young king salmon raised in pens off a dock in Oxnard will be released today a mile off the breakwater of Channel Islands Harbor, officials said.
