The Fisheries Department of the Mexican government announced last week that it was abolishing the requirement for vessels to have a Mexican license to fish in Mexican waters.

"This is really great news," said Ed Tschernoscha of Baja Fish Gear in Torrance. "This will save private boaters money and allow them to follow albacore and other pelagic species into Mexican waters."

Don Ashley, owner of the Toronado out of Pierpoint Landing in Long Beach, loves the new change in Mexican law.

"Sportboats were required to buy boat permits by the month; that was an investment of several thousand dollars at a time," Ashley said. "With the albacore in Mexican waters one day and not the next, many of us just stayed in U.S. waters.

"Now, we can go where the fish are and fish in Mexican waters whenever we want."

Added Tschernoscha: "Under the prior Mexican law, if you had a boat, with a dinghy and or an inflatable on board, you were required to have each craft licensed."

Private boaters will be required to have a valid Mexican fishing license, but boat permits are a thing of the past. Baja Fish Gear in Lomita carries Mexican fishing licenses. It can be reached at 310-517-9897.
