The harvest for this lobster season is expected to exceed 320 tonnes said this official: subdelegado de Pesca en Quintana Roo, Manuel Cárdenas  Magaña. The ban from March 1 to June 30 along the coasts here and in Central American for the breeding season is showing benefits. The minimum size for a lobster to be caught is 13.5 cm. (5.3 inches..they should be bigger than the bills you are using to purchase them, generally) The ban on Queen conch (caracol rosada) has  improved their density at Banco Chinchorro, which may lead to ending the ban there, but the Navy recovered 200 kilos from there last week (poached) and a few months ago 720 kilos were discovered at the Escarcega checkpoint.

Since the summer holiday period began on July 6th the Port Authority has only had to issue two verbal warnings, and some recommendations, to tour operators. The verbal warnings were in regards to life jackets on board  equaling  the maximum capacity of the vessel.  There are 350 vessels, of which 134 are dedicated to whale shark tours and all are complying with the safety requirements, to avoid being sanctioned.

Mobile venders appear now
Los ambulantes aparecen ahora. [+] Ver mas
It is estimated in Por Esto that ~45% of mobile vendors lack permits, then the article notes that it is unknown whether the vendors who have "appeared" are operating with or without permission. Those with permits pay 500 pesos (I think that is monthly). Established businesses must also pay taxes, rent, fees, and other expenses, and they are not pleased with the increased number of mobile vendors that have appeared with the holiday season.

Increase in diarrheal  illnesses
Alarmante aumento de enfermedades diarreicas [+] Ver mas
The number of consultations at the General hospital for diarrheal disorders is 40 percent higher than last year, and people are advised to take precautions with food during the hot weather and in sunlight, especially between noon and 4pm. The Director of the hospital said that during the summer months it is normal for diarrheal illnesses to increase by 40 percent. He advises people use extreme hygiene with food preparation, since these infections are from contaminated food or water. He encouraged the public to report any outbreaks in their family.

Sunrise this morning from MVC B&B

Lotsa turtles digging nests again last night. This photo is to show their scale...if she stood in the hole at right, her shoulders would be ~ ground level.

There was a beautiful moonrise last night...but I can't take decent moon photos.

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 the hatchlings are released by the public at events at dusk on Media Luna or Guadalupana beaches. The releases usually start around the end of July & are held periodically until early October.
    Lately the water has been very calm and there have been many manta rays, with many swimming upside down, in addition to many whale sharks. Offshore from MVC, we have been seeing dolphins & turtles from the balcony, and lotsa big fish while snorkeling. 

 There are small red crabs that migrate to & from the sea in July, 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.

The Super full moon will be rising at 9:04, after the sunset at 7:30 (and about an hour later nightly) link

 On the internet in the past 24 hours...

If you visited the Daily Specials page of my Restaurant Guide with Menus & Delivery would find explanations (like this) of today's specials at Manolito's, what's cookin' at Soggy Peso, where to find half priced appetizers, other discounts, and more....There's always a tab at the top of this page!

Specials available at noon today at Manolitos Loncheria:
*ESCABECHE DE POLLO  Yucatec Chicken & Onion Stew *BISTEC A LA CAZUELA   Steak in a Pan (w sauce) 
*PUERCO ADOBADO   Pork in chile sauce/adobe
-POC CHUC  Yucatec Pork BBQ
-MILANESA DE POLLO O PUERCO  Breaded chicken or pork steak Parmesan

  This is how Chicken Escabeche is made (Warning: These may make your mouth to water & this first one is complicated)...

1. In a small bowl, combine coriander, oregano, salt, pepper, cumin, cloves, allspice, and cinnamon; set spice mix aside. In a large bowl, whisk together half the spice mix, orange, grapefruit, and lime juices, and minced garlic; add chicken pieces, and toss to coat evenly in marinade. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
2. Meanwhile, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat. Place whole cloves garlic and chiles on pan, and cook, turning as needed, until lightly charred all over, about 10 minutes for garlic, about 25 minutes for chiles. Transfer to a bowl, and set aside to cool. Remove chicken from marinade, reserving marinade, and working in batches, add to grill; cook, turning once, until lightly charred on both sides, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
3. Heat oil in a 6-qt. saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, sprinkle with remaining spice mix, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and starting to brown, about 15 minutes. Stir in charred chiles and garlic, and then return chicken to pan along with reserved marinade and stock; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Uncover, and continue cooking until liquid is slightly reduced, about 15 minutes; serve with tortillas.

First you make a "Sofrito" with oil, onions, garlic, pepper, oregano, cumin, bay leaf and tomato sauce, and then you add the steak & cook for a couple minutes, then add potatoes, cooking wine, olives, salt, enough water to cover, and cook.. one recipe adds a packet of sazon Goya. Some recipes include green pepper, some leave the steaks whole. Details in English HERE    Photos & recipe in English from Cocina de Nathan

Still lost....July 18  fromJul Isla  She is beige with a white nose
this is Holly, she was lost in La Gloria, has anyone seen her ----- 9992785950 is the contact for the owner, Angelina (She wasn't wearing clothes at the time...)

Isla Animals Daily Update: I arrived in Mexico on Monday and it’s been nothing but dogs since I landed. After being away for a few weeks I think it has overwhelmed me just a bit. But I’m still convinced that we can only do as much as we can do and that we have to stay focused. Today we picked up 10 puppies, 7 from one litter, 2 from another and then one sweet, sweet baby that was tied to a tree (as usual). But we got her, oh, could this little honey break your heart. We took her straight to the vet, as we did the rest of them. Arturo was amazing, spayed and neutered them already. He also bathed them, de-wormed them and vaccinated each one. So the picture is of the lovely pup that was tied to the tree. We unhooked her and all she wanted was to have her tummy rubbed. We named her Juanita. I’m amazed at how these pups stay so wonderful. Juanita was so relieved to be with us, she actually fell asleep on Arturo’s exam table. For my birthday wish we are so close to half way there, now at $980.00 in monthly pledges thanks to Carol. I’m so excited and re-energized about all the things that we are going to do. Also a special thanks to Wag on the Danforth in Toronto who donated a great set of clippers to us, we never have enough.

Link in yesterday's news about this (not in Isla Mujeres).. A dinosaur tail was discovered in northern Mexico and most likely belonged to a hadrosaur, a duck-billed dinosaur. The tail is 4.9 meters (16 feet) long and is made up of 50 vertebrae. Tails are rare finds, and this is the first discovered in such good condition.More info:  Photo via Reuters
