At the signup of a fishing tournament in San Carlos, flyers were being passed out that showed the creation of three closures at SPN Island. These closures are for five years. The protected species are yellow snapper, leopard grouper, triggerfish, octopus and lobster.

From my experience, and from what I have read, true leopard grouper have never been a very common fish on the mainland, unlike over on Baja or the islands over there. But they can be mistaken by some for a true cabrilla.

I dont think I have ever seen a leopard grouper over here. Maybe one.

Triggerfish? Go figure on that one.

From my experience, the true cabrilla and the true red snapper are the bottom fishes that they should be protecting.

It will be interesting to see what form enforcement takes. Or if there will be any at all. Marlin and dorado are illegal fish for commercial take, but that is roundly ignored by PESCA.

Here is a link to the Oficial Notification.

http://dof.gob.mx/nota_detalle.php?codigo=5489927&fecha=12/07/2017

In it it says that no species ( including yellowtail, dorado, cabrilla sardinero, etc) can be taken by anyone in these three zones, but that you can practice catch and release.

So the poster and what I interpret after reading the entire disclosure do not jibe and they also claim that 17 tourist operators solicited this action.

Diving and snorkeling are also permitted in these zones as long as no species are taken for consumption.

Just cant wait to see the pangueros releasing yellowtail in those areas. I do occasionally see them in the northern and the eastern zones.

Hopefully, they just wont fish in those areas.

Hardly any pangueros left targeting YT at the island anymore. 3 was a big crowd last season. San Antonio was dead too so the few that are left that haven't completely given up on yt stay close around Social Security Reef.

I still a few bottom fishermen lloking for bass, grouper snapper, but they are at the main reef well south of the island.


The red snapper bite is still a go to for them at the island, but in deeper water

Wow, they seem stretched reasonably thin right now, patrolling the by product of the net boats, the long liners a ways out with the dorado, billfish and turtle drop lines. I understand their only known livelihood for generations but even the pangueros have a very limited lifespan fishing in the next 2 or 3 years? They are simply too good at what they do? Without limitation and enforcement, the Sea of Cortez fishery, commercial or sports anywhere near here, Guaymas or the island will not exist shortly in my limited knowledge opinion. It has been very obvious to this novice over the last few years and greatly devastated and depleted over the last 10 or 12 years. Absolutely nothing scientific, only my observation. Ron
