It was from one of the best dorado years, and he posted how they had fished for 1/2 day, and kept over 50 dorado, but it was OK because they gave most of them to El Cobijo and the orphanage. He got ripped for weeks after posting - I don't think he knew how to delete it. ;)

Healthy sargaso supports tiny baitfish under it that a lot of fish eat, includingg dorado. But they are a tiny part of their diet, as dorados will generally follow the much larger flying fish, mullet, squid, or anything else they can find to eat.

Sargasoo is part of the chain, but a very small part, imo. Dorado fillets are now in Costo, Trader Joes and others, so that's where you will no find the bulk of them.

The dorado from Costco and Trader Joes most likely comes from some where else, not Mexico. If you look at NOAA numbers for dorado from Mexico the exportation has dropped drastically from Mexico. Especially during summer months when dorado from the Sea of Cortes would cross the border. The last time I checked no dorado from Mexico was making to the U.S. during summer months.

The other big problem is the crashing of the pelagic sardine fishery in the Sea of Cortes and west coast of California.

All the dead Grebes in the water this year probably have a lot to do with lack of small bait fish.

Marlin and Sailfish are next on the Mexican commercial fisherman's list gentlemen. It is as simple and as sad as that.

Sure it is nice to follow the rules but in reality how many people really do?

Ironman: there are so many stories like that (mexican mel) that not everyone hears.  Several years ago a boat went out for the day and caught 99 dorado......they were aiming for 100 or course.....and when I heard it and saw it it made me sick and then I asked the person why they did it and what did they gain and they said.......we caught more than anyone.  Oh and by the way not one of the fish weighed over 5 lbs.

Dorado migrate from their home grounds in Ecuador all the way to California. So in route they are getting fish commercially fished, and this cuts their population. I understand that the US no longer allows the import from Mexico, but they do take dirado from Ecudor, Panama, Costa Rica, Guatamala. They also import other species of fish from Mexico,, and lots of fillets are intentionally marked as other fish types to fool USDA inspectors.

Mexican fisherman continue to fish dorado commercially for the local population centers like Mexico City, Guadalajara, Monterrey, etc, and for years trucks containing tons of dorado left collection centers in Barra de Navidad, Manzanillo, San Blas, Mazatlan, etc for these markets. I know, because I've seen it personally.

I have to agree. If I run into an area with schoolies I move on.  They're not really fun to catch and even if you intend to release many times they're injured by the hook and won't make it. Pointless.
