La violación a la veda ocasiona que disminuya la captura de la langosta

ISLA MUJERES, 26 de agosto.- The President of the cooperative "Por la Justicia Social" said this had been a difficult year because many fishermen did not respect the ban and with the destruction of lobster roe, the species has suffered a large decrease, which now affects everyone. He said the fishermen of Punta Allen, as well as those of Holbox, have managed to capture up to 40 tons of lobster, while the six cooperatives of Isla Mujeres together cannot match that number. He said during the four months from March to June of closed seasons for lobster, grouper, and shark, the city needs to provide jobs that pay at least twice the minimum wage (The minimum wage is ~five dollars a day). He said the fishermen would be grateful for jobs such as maintaining piers, beaches, and parks to help them continue supporting their families.

Good income from the holidays

Buenos ingresos por vacaciones

The port was reopened for  on Saturday at 4pm, with caution for navigation, and the only activity that remained suspended was the whale shark tours. Sunday morning many tour bouts were seen in the bay as well as catamarans, yachts, and other boats moored near the beautiful beaches. Tourism has been declining gradually, and now you especially see European tourists; from Italy, Israel, (sic) and England, among others. The tourism service providers reported they are happy with the income they made this summer holiday season of 2013.

"Charalito" dies in house fire

Arde casa y muere 'Charalito'

  José Germán Pacheco Caamal, (aka) "Charalito", 50, died Saturday night when his humble 'carton' home, at Hidalgo Avenue and Nicolas Bravo, quickly burned down. Preliminary investigations indicate the cause of the fire was a candle, but there are hypothesis that he fell asleep with a cigarette in his hand, which triggered the fire. The Naval responders were the first on the scene with their pump and team (carro bomba y equipo) to put out the fire, which had reduced the house to ashes. "Charalito" leaves behind five children, with the oldest being 15 years of age. Unofficially the mayor has offered help to this family.

Parents and children sanctioned with community service

Parents of the twelve children who were caught with a marijuana cigarette last weekend appeared before the Prosecutor (procurador) of the Defense of Minors and Families of the Municipal DIF social service agency, Israel Aaron Vergara Fuentes. They were summoned to appear with their children at 11:00am. They were assigned to perform a number of activities together, such as beach cleaning and landscaping in the parks. These are to be days of family reintegration, and there will be sessions and family discussions and monitoring, to improve family bonding and communication.

Critter events...
It is currently the season for swimming with the whale sharks, and turtles are mating offshore & nesting on the eastern beaches. The mating is visible by day, especially off Punta Sur, the South Point. The nesting happens in the wee hours, and there are Tortugranja personnel, volunteers, and Naval staff monitoring the beaches to prevent people from disrupting them, and to gather and transport the eggs for incubation.
       By far, most of the turtles nesting in Isla Mujeres are Green turtles (called Blancas in Spanish), and the second most common are the huge Loggerheads, and there are some Hawksbills.  The Green turtles take ~60 days to hatch and are held in the water tanks at the Tortugranja until the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana. These events will occur periodically until early October and are usually announced a day or two in advance. They are rescheduled if the sea is rough.
    Lately there have been many rays, in addition to many whale sharks. From MVC, we have been seeing dolphins from the balcony,  and some large fish while snorkeling offshore. Lotsa mama turtles visiting our beach lately! 

 There are small red crabs that migrate to & from the sea in July-August, watch out for them at night on the coastal road at the southeastern part of the isle.
  Lobster season began July 1 and continues until the end of February.

Sunrise from MVC B&B



 The lounger on its side and driftwood are a barricade to protect an 'old' turtle nest from July. The previous night a mama had shoved it aside and dug there. I pushed sand back over the nest & reset the barricade. This night one went around the yard & dug into it from the opposite side. It's a popular spot. The eggs/nest were overlooked when they were fresh, which is when they can be transported to the tortugranja. We didn't know there were eggs there until another turtle dug some of them up.

 On the internet in the past 24 hours...

These are some of the awesome turtle farm employees & volunteers that work endlessly through turtle season collecting eggs, caring for the turtles at the farm & organizing releases. Yesterday evening, they released 2000 turtles at Guadalupana's beach. Kudos to all their hard work & dedication to the turtles of Isla!
