    I know that everyone complains about how the fishing is not as good as it used to be but now you have a chance to have your voice heard about this very important issue. There have been meetings this summer that are geared toward opening up the Dorado fishery to commercial fishing which would spell the death of sport fishing for Dorado as we know it. Please take the time to respond to this survey and get your information heard.

    It only takes eight minutes to assistance in our efforts to better understand and preserve Mexico’s sportfishing heritage by participating in this survey. It is part of a larger environmental research project being conducted by the Marine Science Center at the National Polytechnic Institute (Fisheries Department at CICIMAR) regarding the use, management and conservation of Mexico’s natural resources. This survey is funded through the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) and the National Council for Science and Technology (CONACYT) of Mexico for environmental research. <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p> </o:p>
    A host of sportfishing and tourist organizations as well as other entities concerned about the future of sportfishing in Mexico support the efforts of this survey including a majority of the sportfishing fleets on both the mainland and throughout Baja, major tournaments, many of the resorts and the Mexican Sportfishing Association. The scientific data collected from this survey will help to generate the necessary information needed to address “best use” practices, management, and conservation of Mexico’s natural resources. <o:p></o:p>

    I appreciate your concern and the effort you have put forth........But, if they haven't learned from the DECREASE in Salmon, Bluefin, Halibut, and White Sea Bass, Black Seabass, DORADO IS A NOTHER VICTIM........Of man kind.
    Best wishes!!!!

    Thanks for all the great responses and it will make some difference in the long run. Special thanks to Robin Wade from Western Outdoor News for spearheading a lot of this which just means a lot of extra work for her. Thanks also to Pam Bolles of Baja Big Fish Company in Loreto and Minerva in Cabo but to name a couple of people who are going way above and beyone the call to try to have an impact on this issue.
