Can this be legal?/?Puede ser legal?

Commercial fishing is not compatible with its main economic activity, tourism, or its main urban function, recreation.

The Gaviotas Ecology Group is researching if the activity is legal.

Are they Mexican or American boats? You're right on the border- I'm surprised their not afraid of netting one of Dik Cheney's ocean-going nuclear mines or a US Navy frogman or two.

Actually Las Gaviotas has found more than 70 phosphorus bombs washed up on our beach from the US Navy over the past few years. Cathie and I found one. I "blogged" about this the first year we were here. Complaints have been filed with the US EPA and with the Mexican equivalent. Everything has been covered up.

One of the questions is where this boat is from. There was only one and only for two mornings.

Perhaps they were "fishing" for the senorita in picture one!
