Off the shores of Loreto is a large marine park designed to protect the vast array of sea creatures. There is still very active sportfishing and no shortage of whale watching tours during the winter season. Loreto is not the only area of Baja California that has taken steps to prevent over fishing. The folks at National Geographic wrote a feature article describing many of these efforts. Please read Baja California’s Recipe for Saving Fishing Communities for the full story with some amazing photos and videos.
On your next visit to the Loreto area, you’ll have an even greater appreciation for the marine park and the many species of sea life you are likely to see.
