A Plea From Seawatch

David Simmonds

Mexico Premiere fully supports various environmental groups focused on Mexico. Here is a note from Seawatch founder Mike McGettigan. Please help to preserve the amazing diversity of sea life in the Sea of Cortez.

Dear Friends:

We must act now to prevent the full implementation of the by-catch provisions of Mexico’s NOM029-PESCA-2006.

These provisions allow commercial fishing boats, using non-selective longline and drift gillnet gear, to catch and sell currently protected sport fish, like marlin and dorado. The repurcussions will be devastating to 6 protected sport species.

Please take a moment to send an e-mail to Senador Luis Coppola and other government authorities asking for a senate investigation. With one click you will be presented with a choice of letters. Pick one and click send. With enough input from the public, these regulations will be reviewed and ultimately repealed. We need at least 1,000 e-mails to make sure our voices are heard. You can make a difference, but the time is short – act now: Click Here.
