 Two Fish Species Kicked Off of Restaurants Menus

Big news for eco-conscious diners and fishing enthusiasts in Los Cabos! In a commendable move, members of the Los Cabos restaurant association (Canirac) have collectively decided to take a stand for sustainability. They’ve agreed to remove Dorado (Mahi-Mahi) and Marlin dishes from their menus. This decision reflects a growing awareness and respect for the local marine environment.

These fish species are not just any catch; they’re reserved for sportfishing, which happens to be one of the major tourist attractions in our resort destination. By keeping these fish off the menus, the restaurants are playing a vital role in preserving these species and supporting the sportfishing industry.

But don’t worry, seafood lovers! You can still enjoy your own catch of the day. If you’re out fishing and reel in a Dorado or Marlin, feel free to bring it along to a restaurant. They just won’t be buying these fish for resale.

This move is more than just a change in menu; it’s about protecting the activity that originally put Cabo on the map. Sportfishing brings in an estimated $150 million a year, a significant contribution to our local economy. Cheers to the restaurants of Los Cabos for making a choice that benefits our oceans, our tourism, and our future!
