Caribbean sea walkway needs maintenance  
Se olvidaron del malecón Caribe.. [+] Ver masPhoto & full article at this link
     The malecon offers spectacular views of the Caribbean from 12 meters above sea level, but residents are complaining that it lacks maintenance and needs better lighting, because the lighting system has been destroyed. Alderman Victor Osorio has been taking photos of this and other problems, and showing them to the reporter.
       A resident fell in this area a few months ago and was injured. Sra. Maria Ek Perez said, "A tourist could suffer this problem at any time, if necessary precautions aren't taken."  Rocks that provide barriers to prevent people from falling over the cliffs have been removed, and some have been recently thrown down to the beach. 

No market for escribano fish
Ya no es negocio la captura del pez escribano.. [+] Ver mas Photo & full article at this link
 May 29   Daniel Avila Soliz holds a permit for scribe/escribano fishing in the area of Isla Contoy National Park, and he says he is affected by low prices, which indicates there is a 'black market' and the fish are being poached from the Reserve. Normally a batch of ten fish sells for 100 pesos, but lately they are only bringing 50 pesos, which causes Sr. Avila problems, because he has serious health problems which have evolved over time.
       He faces high fuel costs and and costs for assistants, because he cannot move very well, due to his health problems. Fortunately, Sr. Avila has two small local businesses providing income, or his story would be different.
    They go out fishing approximately every sixty days, catching about 1000 fish for him to sell during the interim, from his freezer. He pays two assistants 600 pesos each to help with the nets, and he pays 200 pesos to have the bottom of his boat cleaned.  He must also purchase 100 liters of gasoline, costing nearly 1500 pesos. 
   However, he says the market is flooded, and he is only able to sell because he has loyal clients who come seeking his product. There are three permits to catch escribano fish in Isla Contoy, which belong to  Daniel Avila, Tony Martínez and “Yoyo” Novelo, of Cancún. But there seem to be 'strangers' coming to catch the fish at night, according to recent, persistent rumors.
    There are dozens of marinas which need escribano to provide for sports fishing during this spring-summer season of tourism sports fishing, but it appears these fish are being brought in from outside the region, as well as from within the area.
