A clear case to support the banning of gill nets for commercial fishing

Just came across this video about the emptying of marine life from the Sea of Cortez between mainland Mexico and the Baja California Peninsula. It’s a clear indictment against the serious damage that commercial overfishing and the use of gill nets have done to what once was a remarkable paradise for hundreds of types of fish and marine life.

The consequences of blatant of human destruction are clear. Watch the video. It not only shows what’s been done but offers some hope with the conservation efforts taking place. To have the locals get behind these efforts is pretty special. One van hope that these efforts will payoff – for the people who depend on fishing for their livelihood and for the Sea of Cortez to be able to return to its aquatic splendor.
