1. Been below 130 twice -- once w/ friend who didn't get narc'ed in DiveMaster class, wanted to try harder(?!?) - and it is usually empty and boring below about 80 except wrecks or game. Laws aside, sport divers take game a lot more selectively than commercial divers... let alone "draggers".
2. Vaquitas apparently are being poached to extinction for Asian aphrodisiac market. Viva ignorance!
3. Laws and boundaries are everywhere on every subject, but lack of funding for enforcement just breeds scofflaws.
4. More people turning to NGO's for targeted response, but without authority backing them, see #3.

Still, Mexico is trying and getting better; I just hope it's not too late. Doing the right thing is usually one luxury that goes away in hard times.
