  • IGFA | Mexico Keep Dorado Off the Table
    Dorado Off the Table The Mexican Congress has been conducting forums throughout Mexico and Baja for the past two years seeking input from the sportfishing and commercial industry on the feasibility of removing dorado from the list of species reserved exclusively for sportfishing which is outlined in the Mexican Fisheries law The passing of this initiative would allow the commercialization of dorado The sixth Forum was convened unexpectedly last week in Tapachula Chiapas Minerva Saenz IGFA Representative in Los Cabos along with many others responded to the last minute call for testimony They traveled more than two thousand miles at great personal expense to once again voice the Sportfishing Industries opposition to any action that would allow the taking of more dorado for commercial purposes The ever effusive Minerva observed on her return Monday The meeting was the most powerful of the six that I have attended The government officials were impressed and seemed to be very receptive to our objections and recommendations Presidents of various commercial fishing associations attended to encourage the passing of this initiative which would result in dorado being commercialized Many Mexican Sportfishing organizations were represented including the local Asociacion de Pesca Deportiva of Chiapas and were joined by International Game Fish Representatives Minerva Sáenz Representante IGFA Cabo San Lucas B C S David Jones Representante IGFA La Paz B C S Ing Ricardo Hernández Carrasco Representante IGFA Oaxaca Oaxaca Gary Graham Representante IGFA Baja California Sur and Nassim Joaquin Delbouis Representante IGFA Cozumel Quintana Roo in voicing their opposition The following items summarize the opposition to the submitted initiative Lack of biological studies confirming whether or not the dorado population could sustain commercialization The illegal exportation of dorado is a flagrant violation of our Mexican laws Commercialization of dorado is not a sustainable economic solution

  • IGFA | IGMR Race Reports
    Researchers Once all the data is received from a tag a series of plots are generated to visualize temperature and depth preferences diving behavior and water column conditions By using the light based geo locations from each tag researchers are able to determine where each tag pops up which determines the winner of each race and the light data also allows researchers to produce the statistically robust paths that each IGMR billfish swims The data is then compiled to create comprehensive race reports for each IGMR sponsor and participant Currently available IGMR Race Reports Richard s Bay South Africa 2012 IGMR Race Report Exmouth Australia 2012 IGMR Race Report Madeira Portugal 2012 IGMR Race Report Kona USA 2012 IGMR Race Report San Juan Puerto Rico 2012 IGMR Race Report Lizard Island Australia 2012 IGMR Race Report Salinas Ecuador 2013 IGMR Race Report Tahiti French Polynesia 2013 IGMR Race Report Gold Coast Australia 2013 IGMR Race Report Kona USA 2013 IGMR Race Report Mohammedia Morocco 2013 IGMR Race Report Lizard Island Australia 2013 IGMR Race Report Cabo San Lucas Mexico 2013 IGMR Race Report Los Suenos Costa Rica 2013 IGMR Race Report Watamu Kenya 2013 IGMR Race Report Abaco Islands Bahamas
