Local fishermen and others, related to the fish industry in St Johns County, came to a room near the St Augustine lighthouse to ask questions, related to the possible nomination of a marine sanctuary that would extend from Jacksonville to Cape Canaveral.Conservationists and environmentalists tried to answer the question of fisherman who wanted to know more on how this would affect their lively-hood, and if this meant more regulations on them.The meeting was passionate, as both sides expressed their pros and cons on the issue. It seemed that both sides agreed on not wanting oil exploration or drilling in our area, but the conversation will continue in order to try to find a middle ground on all the issues related to this possible marine sanctuary.
