Manzanillo Report in English

Here is the report Ines and I did on the illegal long line fishery in Manzanillo last July. Unbelievably to us the report actually had an impact on the fishery and the federal government cracked down on the illegal long liners. I will be following up on what is happening down there shortly. The Manzanillo sport fishing club is about to run their fishing tournament, the longest running sport fishing tournament in the country. So I will get in touch with the sport fishing community and find out if the government has kept up the pressure to curtail illegal long lines or if things are back to normal.

  1. Hey Vince,

    What great work you’re doing. The lengths you go to expose illegal commercial fishing is really overwhelming to me. You take huge risks and I’m sure that you’ve made some powerful enemies. That’s the biggest reason I’m writing you… to express my thanks and to let you know that while you may have enemies from the commercial interests and corrupt politicians/bureaucrats, you also have a ton of friends out there that spread the word about your work and mission. I’ll be adding some of your material to my site,, as I work on a redesign of the entire site. At minimum there will be a entire page dedicated to what you’ve done so far and how folks who care about sport fishing and the health of our oceans can help. Please let me know if there are specific things you would like to see included… I’ll do whatever I can to help.

    Maybe one of these days we can get together over a beer/lunch down in Cabo. Perhaps Minerva can join us (Minie and I have been great friends for a long, long time and she speaks very highly of you, with good reason).

    Best regards and with the utmost respect,


    • Thanks Richard, we appreciate the comment. Ines and I are working on a scheme of monetizing our independent media project and will be back down in Cabo this winter for sure.

      Best Regards,
