Security Gates Installed on San Diego Landings

All of the sportfishing landings in San Diego now have gates across the head of their docks. Anglers leaving on long-range trips must present photo identification to authorities at the gates before boarding. The gates are meant to be a security measure against possible terrorism, but the reaction is mixed so far: they are regarded as a nuisance by some, and welcomed as important security by others. The real test of their public acceptance may come this summer when crowds of dayboat anglers again descend on the docks. For more information, visit
