Fishermen had a 'field day' with catches of large amounts of Lisetas (mullet)

 Con recale de gran cantidad de lisetas

ISLA MUJERES, 5 de octubre.-
  Local fishermen caught about a ton and a half of these fish, which are captured in the months of September and October. Large schools of these fish have been seen in the Isla Mujeres Bay and off the eastern side of the island, but they were not captured because the market is already saturated. 
        They are characterized by a dark back and silver belly, and are about 50 centimeters long. They are a fast growing fish which reaches about a kilogram in about eight months of fattening. These fish are only available to eat once or twice a year in each home, and then island families wait to eat them again next year.

Controversy at new hospital
Genera polémica el nuevo hospital . [+] Ver mas
   There are differing opinions on whether the swamp which is located 10 meters from the new hospital should be filled in, and no final decision has been made. An unnamed official, who is close to the committee evaluating this issue, said they are in favor of a scientific study to see the advantages and disadvantages to the environment, before a decision is made.
     Federal officials recently arrived to oversee the preparations for the official opening and ribbon cutting for the facility. The hospital has been operational for several weeks with good results, but there are still some specialties lacking.

  The Magana ferry boats were not ready on Monday or Tuesday, as had been hoped, and low income families are eagerly awaiting their return to service, when they will continue to offer 50 pesos round trip tickets to islanders and residents of Quintana Roo. They have been out of service for repairs for two weeks.

From Sally MargolisHi all!! We (Isla Animals) are gearing up for a HUGE Spay/Neuter, Vaccination, Wellness campaign for the animals in Rancho Viejo Nov 17-22. This is a very poor area in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. Most are living without electricity and running water. The situation for the animals there is dire right now with parvo & distemper running rampant, and heavy overpopulation. We expect to treat/vaccinate/spay/neuter 1000 cats & dogs with the cost of surgery at just $10us per dog. This may be the only time any of these animals see a vet. We can treat the existing animals, vaccinate others against disease, curb the population growth, and educate pet owners on proper animal care and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! We have the knowledge, experience, volunteers, and heart to make it happen. We are asking for all of your help to raise funds to make the campaign a reality. (We can also accept Paypal donations via our site islaanimals.org - just add RANCHO VIEJO in message, and cash in person on Isla Mujeres. Please, please share the link on your social media. It helps us so much. If you are not in a position to donate PLEASE do read the campaign & share, there is lots of excellent info in it about the work we do-There is always so much to do! Thank you for your time! http://www.gofundme.com/isla-animals-rv
