Through the municipal Agency for the Fishing Industry, the City Council, led by the Mayor is reenforcing its commitment to this sector; on this occasion by offering information and advice about access to federal resources and by improving their working conditions. The director of this agency, Humberto Moguel, has met with various members of the fishing cooperatives and announced that there are many programs that the fishermen could use, and they are working in a coordinated fashion to access these resources.
The agency will work as a liaison for funds that would be awarded directly to the cooperatives from the federal government from programs that offer productive work, equipment, and infrastructure such as boats, motors, palapas, and docks.
On another subject, the director said they are preparing for the Lion Fish Tournament February 14 & 15, and enthusiastic participation by the islanders is expected. In December, there was a successful culinary event based on Lion Fish, and on that date the Mayor gave instructions to begin preparations to carry out this event. Por Esto notes that there should be attractive prizes for the winners.

The Habor Master issued a general caution for navigation by all vessels, which is directed at providers of boat tours from Isla Mujeres and Puerto Juarez, as well as the fishermen and seafarers in general. This was due to prevailing winds between 40 and 45 km/hr, gusting to 50 km/hr. The port authority added that the advisory could be maintained for at least a couple of days, and if appropriate the winds could cause the closing of the port to general navigation, depending on the intensity of the winds. (This occasionally affects some of the crossings of the car ferry, but generally it does not affect the Ultramar schedule.) He said this cold front is #26, with number 27 behind it, and it is not known what sort of winds #27 will bring to this area of Quintana Roo. Mariners are advised to exercise caution and tour providers to Isla Contoy must weigh the danger before setting out.

Red Cross: Using borrowed ambulance
Cruz Roja, con ambulancia prestada[+] Ver mas
The ambulance from the General Hospital is being used while the Red Cross ambulance has been out of service for several days due to mechanical problems. If the hospital ambulance also breaks down, Isla Mujeres will be left without these life saving services. The staff of the Red Cross have this problem on their agenda of discussions with the directors of the organization. This ambulance was obtained over five years ago and has suffered severe wear and tear while serving the tourists, especially in times of high season, trying to provide service to support the citizenry.
It has only been three weeks since the Red Cross ambulance last left the work shop, and there is a lack of funds to purchase parts and pay for costs. It is necessary for the municipal government to intervene and for businessmen to address the issue, interjected a former representative of the institution.
