Complaints about Cubans invading fishing areas LINK
The problem involves the "Bonito" species which used by Isla Mujeres fishermen as bait and there are complaints from those who currently dedicate themselves to whale shark activity. They complain that the Cuban boats are fishing in Mexico's waters., and affecting the migration of the whale sharks.
The protest is planned for Tuesday, twelve nautical miles from Isla Mujeres, where a fleet of Cuban fishing boats is located, who are 'destroying the species with their indiscriminate fishing', according to the Isla Mujeres fishermen. Ten boats are expected to participate, as well as some boats offering whale shark tours. Raciel Rivero, president of the Patria & Progreso cooperative said they want authorities to intervene.
Last year the fishermen undertook the task of reviewing the free trade agreements and the decrees or authorizations that exist through SARGAPA and CONAPESCA, since the fishing carried out by the Cubans may be covered by some law.
