Preserving Cozumel's Flats and Lagoons


Aquarius Fishing is the perfect choice for every variety of fishing in the Cozumel, Cancun and Riviera Maya area. Aquarius Fishing is actively helping restore Cozumel's National Parks
For the past 6 years, Aquarius Fishing, along with the fishermen's union (Cooperativa Lagunas De Cozumel) and the Mexican Federal Government (CONANP), have tirelessly worked to help preserve and conserve Cozumel's incredible fishery.  It is vital to ensure the flow of tides that brings nutrients to the balance of the ecosystems in these lagoons. Many man hours have been spent cleaning and widening the channels that connect our lagoons system from Rio De La Plata lagoon, passing by Paso Balem lagoon and ending up in Montecristo lagoon.  Ongoing efforts involve removing all dead mangroves that were affected during hurricane Wilma and planting new trees.  In addition, three years ago, a new mouth that connects the sea directly to the lagoons was created to improve the water flow and nutrients to all corners of these lagoons and flats.


Aquarius Fishing is the perfect choice for every variety of fishing in the Cozumel, Cancun and Riviera Maya area. In 2011, our Federal Mexican Government declared the north side of the island a natural area for the preservation and conservation of flora and fauna that exist there. Therefore, only activities related to the tourism is permitted; such as diving, snorkeling, wind surfing, kite boarding, bird watching, Mayan ruins tours and Robinson Crusoe Tours.   In addition,  sport fishing the flats is approved, as long as all fish species are carefully released.


Five years ago, Aquarius Fishing, along with fishermen’s union and coordination with the Federal government, started a long term program that involves the restoration, preservation and conservation of all lagoons and flats on the island.  As a result of all the hard work performed, the flats fishing has improved drastically. Currently, we are catching bigger bonefish, larger permit, average size snook and  baby tarpon.
