Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park is New Home to Gulf Grouper

For those fish and marine lovers, a new study has shown that the National Marine Park in Mexico’s Gulf of California, has seen the total amount of its denizens more than quintupled in the past 14 years.

A 1.2-meter-long gulf grouper (Mycteroperca jordani) is among the new inhabitants of the park as one of the largest predators that have returned to Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park after a long-time fishing ban. The park has also witnessed Pacific tunas, sharks visiting to dine on the park’s reef fish.

Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park is situated where the Gulf opens into the Pacific and is a widely-known tourist destination in Mexico, due to its great diving and snorkeling.
