Letter to General Director for Responsible Fishing, Mexico
March 4, 2013
Aldo Gerardo Padilla Pestano,
General Director and Coordinator of the Subcommittee for Responsible Fishing
Dear Dr. Pestano,
Thank you for your letter of 18th February describing the very significant actions being taken by the Mexican Government to conserve the Vaquita.
Members of the Society for Marine Mammalogy are delighted to hear of the statutory changes requiring the netting practices to catch shrimp species in waters under the jurisdiction of Mexico to be changed to reduce the incidental take of Vaquita.
