Marine Life Increases by 463% in Cabo Pulmo
So, I was reading this article the other day and was simply amazed by what it was saying about Cabo Pulmo. It was talking about the fact that marine life has increased by 463%!! Wow, 463%?? Really?!?
I mean I have seen a huge increase myself on my diving expeditions (I took the above picture just the other day) I knew that there was an incredible increase in biomass, but didn’t truly grasp the extent of it.
Just look at what the article I read in “Sign On San Diego News” had to say…
“Marine life at Cabo Pulmo National Park near the southern tip of Baja California increased by 463 percent between 1999 and 2009, according to a new study led by researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography”.
“Fish recovery at Cabo Pulmo National Park was so extensive that researchers said it looked like areas of the Pacific Ocean that have never been fished. — Octavio Aburto-Oropeza”
That’s just the beginning of the article, click here to read the rest of it.
I’m blogging about this because if any of you out there are divers or snorkelers now is the time to plan a trip to Cabo Pulmo.
If you have even had a small thought about learning to dive, go down to Cabo Pulmo and do it now. If snorkeling is the way you want to go, great! We got ya covered, do it now, you will not regret it. Diving and snorkeling just doesn’t get any better than this!
