Reel in the Bounty
of Cedros Island
Biosphere Reserve

“The diversity of species and habitats around Cedros Island makes this a destination with plenty of action and a chance to improve your fishing.”

Cedros Island’s waters became part of a Mexican Biosphere Reserve (a natural protected area) in 2016. This decree resulted from a 10-year process to stop predatory over-fishing by hundreds of shrimp trawlers and dozens of sardine and tuna seiners that were extremely destructive to the environment. Today, locals and tourists alike enjoy cleaner water and more abundant and diverse species of game fish.
