Unless Conpesca says it legal and puts it in writing ITS ILLEGAL
Just because some charter operators in Ensenada want to say its legal doesnt' make it so

Seiners wrap a lot of things, not just bft. They were wrapping yt in the flats this spring. Not saying it could be yt, just think about it. And I dont advise running up close enough to get a picture of the mexi seiners to prove its bluefin there wrapping. At least one of the seiner captains is very aggressive, probably all if you invade there space.

I hope the US reaches its commercial quota soon. The purse seine fleet was out in force on the 14 today.

Can't you see the handwritting on the wall? The US sportfishing industry is being squeezed out of Mexican waters. The only way the US owned boats are going to survive is to relocate to Mexico.
