mussels quarantine is almost over, and I'm planning to head out to get some. Does any know if the mussel bed at Pillar Point is in the marine protected zone? It looks like it's in the borderline. Is there a landmark that lets you know when you cross over to the marine protected areas?

I could be mistaken, but I thought the zone began at the northwest corner of Pillar Point/Mavericks beach and extended northward.

Thanks sea_forager. Here's the MPA I'm talking about.

Are the Sail Rocks south of the MPA? I can't really tell by just looking at the picture of the map. Any one pick mussels from here?

Good Question. This is the blurb. I cant find anything regarding mussels. I have collected and seen other people collect. I always thought it was below, but looking at the map it clearly is part of the SMCA area.

(66) Pillar Point State Marine Conservation Area.

(A) This area is bounded by the mean high tide line and straight lines connecting the following points in the order listed except where noted:

37 30.000 N. lat. 122 29.920 W. long.;

37 30.000 N. lat. 122 34.608 W. long.; thence southward along the three nautical mile offshore boundary to

37 28.330 N. lat. 122 33.489 W. long.;

37 28.330 N. lat. 122 30.830 W. long.;

37 29.180 N. lat. 122 30.360 W. long.;

37 29.740 N. lat. 122 29.970 W. long.; and

37 29.733 N. lat. 122 29.950 W. long.

(B) Area restrictions defined in subsection 632(a)(1)(C) apply, with the following specified exceptions:

1. The recreational take of pelagic finfish [subsection 632(a)(3)] by trolling [subsection 27.80(a)(3)], Dungeness crab by trap, and market squid by hand-held dip net are allowed.

2. The commercial take of pelagic finfish [subsection 632(a)(3)] by troll or round haul net [Section 8750, Fish and Game Code], Dungeness crab by trap, and market squid by round haul net [Section 8750, Fish and Game Code] is allowed. Not more than five percent by weight of any commercial pelagic finfish or market squid catch landed or possessed shall be other incidentally taken species.
