Although the capture of the lobster has been closed for more than a month, everything indicates that at least until April 2, this restriction has not been respected, since there are still cases of decompressed fishermen, who are treated in the hyperbaric chamber of Isla Mujeres.

Extra-officially it was possible to find out that so far this year in Isla Mujeres, seven divers have been treated for presenting some type of decompression, after staying for one hour or more at considerable depth underwater.

The last case of a decompressed diver was recorded on April 1st, when a group of local fishermen took one of their colleagues known only as “El Chaneque”, to the facilities of the hyperbaric chamber, where he continued under treatment for several hours.

These types of cases continue, despite the end of the lobster season closed since the end of February, which means that some of these commercial divers are not respecting the closure.

At the time, the president of the Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives of the State of Quintana Roo, Baltazar Gómez Catzín, said that any fisherman who is caught in this type of illegal will be suspended by authorities of the Harbor Master and the Mexican Navy will proceed to confiscate his work tools, boat and engine.
