One of our squatter "residents" who is also a fisherman was arrested and his boat, "Janahi", was confiscated by the Sector Naval de Zihuatanejo after they caught him with 187 sailfish and 13 marlin. They also took his long-line with over 1,000 hooks on it.

So I guess the price of sailfish fillet just came way down. And I guess if you're going fishing, there simply won't BE many sailfish for a while.

This has been going on for years and the local sportfishermen have been demanding action year after year with no results from the "responsible authorities". Let's hope this isn't a one-time deal just for show. There are other fishermen doing the same thing, but when they have been caught they threatened the people who arrested them and seemed to have "influential" contacts that got their boats released and their fines reduced if not dropped altogether. Such is life here in our lawless state where even our "responsible authorities" openly defy the law with complete impunity.
