Gov’t agency develops app for boaters, fishermen

A new smartphone app, in both English and Spanish, allows fishermen and boaters to stay in compliance with Mexican laws covering visas and permits.

Developed by Mexico’s Aquaculture and Fishing Commission (Conapesca), the app includes the requirements for boaters who plan to venture into Mexican waters, vessel requirements, fishing and boat permits, visitor immigration documents (FMMs), bag and possession limits, violations and trip and fishing log information and other requirements. It also includes a sport fishing manual, Visit Mexico brochure, a directory of all marinas in Mexico, and a quick guide to sport fishing in Mexico.
