Tom, Didn't know that stuff came in bags. Always thought more in the term of pot.:biggrin:
And the stuff really should only appeal to poor Mexicans or the curious. It's about the same as eating Baja range beef steaks that have been marinated in fishoil for a week or two.:biggrin:

Turtle bust


Don't know what restaurant. I just saw the CONAPESCA and PROFEPA guys standing around behind their trucks in front of the Loreto office and went over to see what was going on. I saw the evidence and asked who, what, where, and got kinda brief answers. The arrestees are here now. The restaurant is up on Bahia Concepcion. The soup/stew was in a cardboard box that was lined with plastic bags. The head looked to be from an adult green turtle. Not endangered, but still very much prohibited. There were people I assume were from the press on hand taking pictures and asking questions. Soon to be in print, I'm sure. I'll watch for it. I agree that a boycott might be at least as effective as whatever the law metes out.

Sure would like more info. Mulege is a small town. If it happened there we are sure to hear more.

I hope they make an example out of the people who caught it. They need to be apprehended. If the restaurant bought that with the intention of selling it as fare I say throw the book at em.

Hope it's no one I know.:o

Got this off another board, don't know if it is true


Perhaps a local newspaper will confirm it.

http://bajaforums.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/3196024271/m/792108...

Still doesn't explain who bought/fenced off all the land south of Coyote to Buenaventura

Peace.

If it's true, it's more than obvious who blew the whistle. Paybacks are a b-tch.

Many years ago (before my "enlightenment") I had turtle stew in La Paz. It was quite tasty. I see the attraction, even for those of us who are not "poor Mexicans."

Eating turtle was a trditional holiday meal in Baja California until the 'new law'... It was quite an occaision to be at Bahia de los Angeles when Cruz Diaz served turtle... pilots would alter their plans to drop in when they heard it was for dinner. So, it must be good!

I was too young to remember the taste or if I even tried it when we stayed at Casa Diaz in 1967... but it was a big deal. In 1966, when we arrived at Comondu on our big transpeninsular trip by Jeep, my parents were invited to join the locals for turtle stew... They were cooking it, in its own shell over the fire... I think we didn't stay... But, as strangers driving through the town, it was an honor to be invited to such a feast, I am sure!

Now, if making turtles illegal so the population recovers to a point they can be reharvested... maybe that will convince the 'old timers' to postpone the turtle killing... knowing there's a reward in the future?

Is there this much anger about the Eskimos and other Northwest tribes who kill grey whales, fur seals, and whatever they get allowed to kill (because 'it is tradition')???

FYI: The guy posting at Bajaforums as "San Buenaventura" is Munoz himself, the person who is trying to steal miles of beachfront in Concepcion by invading and fencing it. He has had a running battle with Mark & Olivia for years. I wouldn't be surprised if he planted the turtle evidence on them, considering his black reputation.
He also sent emails out to baja caravan companies, including us, that we have to pay HIM next year to stay on Bahia Concepcion beaches! I will post his email on this forum when I have replied.
Look for this snake lawyer to show up on Nomads forum soon ...
