– Although there is a price to pay for this (restrictions, permits, etc) its a small inconvenient compared to the many benefits this will bring to the local community of Cedros in the long term. For instance, last season of lobster fishing by the cooperative was the worst catch in the more than 50 years. Probably caused by El Nino or combined with the shrimp trawlers activity. This needed to stop or the community would collapse.
–Furthermore, since the rules of the Biosphere reserve ban the San Diego Sportfishing Long Range fleet from fishing around Cedros and Benitos islands, we would like to invite them to work with any local company of their choosing, so their clients will have continued access.
