Spiny lobster season Mexico

After a rather heated discussion on a local message board about the lobsters in my previous post that are illegal this time of year  I decided to look for an info source which nobody else could provide.  Someone even suggested you don't fish or eat them in months without an R which is a myth probably dating back to when refrigeration was an issue (basically summer months).

So here's what I found starting from Baja California south meaning that the season for our area closed on July 1st so these were illegal by a week.

Thus, from February 16 until 15 September, restrict fishing activities in the productive zone of the Pacific Ocean known as El Tordillo, on the north coast of the Baja California Peninsula.

Also, from March 1 to September 30 capture the restriction apply in the Pacific Ocean region called Boca de Soledad, which includes areas of Bahia Asuncion, Punta Abreojos and San Juanico.

The third period of closure will run from May 1 to November 15 in the south of the peninsula, including fishing areas of San Lazaro, Magdalena Island, Island Thrush Margaritas and Cape to Cape San Lucas. Includes strip between the zero and 100 fathoms in the Gulf of California, along the east coast of the Baja California Peninsula.

Additionally, maintaining the temporary closure to catch spiny lobster, spiny lobster and lobster island, from 1 July to 30 October in the Gulf of California, along the coasts of Sonora and Sinaloa, as well as from Nayarit to Chiapas.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
