Frightening Sight


This horrible machine crossed in front of Punta Chivato yesterday heading towards the mouth of Bahia Concepcion. I have no idea what it was looking for. Reports on finding bait have been really dismal there. But if this thing made a set I suspect there won't be any bait reports there for awhile.

Machines are not horrible, people are.

I am impressed at the paint job on this boat, usually the trawlers seen in SOC are rust-streaked, in need of paint jobs.

Expensive boat, apparently well maintained. Raping the gulf must be a profitable business as long as it lasts, which can't be much longer.

It's seiner, could be after tuna or it could be after sardines for feeding fish in pens.

Taking away the food of wild fish to feed farmed fish. What could possibly go wrong?

Years past during the summer months when the shrimpers were fewer in numbers the sardine boats would be thick. I counted 21 one time. Most were the old rust buckets and would be around for a couple days then return in less than a week. Last summer I counted 5 one day near the mouth but others were a few mile outside probably fishing dorado, mackerel, and the other mackerel type I can't think of the name but was a pest fish, along with any other pelagic fishes. The last few years though most of the sardine/tuna boats have been like shown above. A few had helicopters.

Anyone who actually cares about this subject might want to take 3 and half minutes to watch this video. It is disturbing.

I am a bird-watching guide in BCS and have noticed changes in some marine bird populations already. I haven't seen an Elegant Tern in 2 years, where I used to see them every day in season. The ratio of adult to juvenile Brown Pelicans appears to be trending upward. Where I used to see around 2 to 1 adults over juveniles, today it seems closer to 7 to 1. If you want to drive a species to extinction, a good strategy is to cut off their supply of food for themselves and/or their offspring.

Peru used to export fertilizer made from sardines back 50 years ago. They caught every last one and the resource collapsed. Can Mexico stop the madness before its too late?
