" ?Writing in the Nature Magazine for October, Paul Bonnot, a scientific investigator employed by the commercial fisheries Bureau of the Division of Fish and Game, gives an illuminating picture of the sea lions of the Pacific Coast. Bonnot probably knows more about sea lions and their habits than anyone on the Pacific Coast and he is emphatic in his championing of their cause. Due to Bonnet's investigation the theory that sea lions are a menace to the fishing industry has been exploded, he declares, and his studies disclosed that the sea lions have aided the industry as they generally eat fish that are of little benefit. A recent movement to have the sea lions slaughtered wholesale was doubtless stopped by the publication throughout the State of the results of his investigation of conditions. According to Bonnet's article, there are probably nine thousand of both species, Steller's sea lion and the California sea lion on the California Coast. ? " (October 25, 1929 [Mill Valley Record])
