Asian countries manipulating the crap out of their currency (printing money) then buying wild caught CA game with it. Pretty stupid plan for us. If there is a smaller US market for CA lobsters and we don't allow export, maybe there won't be 500 traps out where you can beach dive. Maybe there would be a few legals past the first couple weeks of the season. Maybe you would see more CA restaurants serving it like back on the east coast.
