Donald asks…

Is there an over population of fish in mexico?

I need a website to back it up with facts.
The reason I am asking this is because we have to talk about an “eco-tourist attraction” for Mexico and I don’t think picking up garbage counts as a vacation. Fishing is fun, and it only counts as an “eco tourist attraction” if it helps the enviornment.

Tijuana answers:

No, there is no over-population of fish in Mexico. There are abundant ecologies, though, that attract tourism. Most of the travel opportunities that are marketed as “eco-tourism” are just ways of observing nature without having too much negative impact.

In Mexico, there are several services that tap the eco-tourist market by offering visits to the gray whale nurseries in the bays along the Pacific coast of the state of Baja California Sur, primarily in Laguna San Ignacio, or visiting the nesting areas of the sea turtles at various locations along the Pacific coast. There are other sites where efforts are being made to raise shrimp and harvest salt in ways that are more respectful of environmental health than older methods (which are still in use too), and these locations are offering tours to support the projects, though they are basically commercial enterprises.

Individual environmental groups organize eco-travel to do specific projects to improve environmental conditions at various times and places, but I don’t know of any ongoing efforts that involve constructive effort on the part of travelers.
