City donates landRocky Point Mayor Gerardo Figueroa Zazueta sustains support of his administration in favor of fishing sector of Puerto Peñasco.

In early December, Puerto Peñasco City Council authorized the donation of land measuring 7,678.54 sq.mts. to the National Fishing Institute (INAPESCA) with the objective of building a fishing and aquaculture research center in Puerto Peñasco.

This comes from the commitment Mayor Gerardo Figueroa Zazueta assumed during a meeting this past October 24th with Gilberto Estrada Duran, Regional Center Director of fishing investigation in Guaymas.

During their fifty-fifth extra session, City Council voted in favor of the initiative presented by City Trustee Herme Damian Velazquez Lopez. The research center will have a regional impact of vital importance on fishing activities.

INAPESCA, a decentralized sectored entity of the Ministry of Agriculture, Ranching, Rural Development, Fishing and Feed (SAGARPA), plans construction of the fishing and aquatic research facility, to begin early next year.
