The small fishing communities of the upper Gulf of California are facing a crisis -
the black market for the swim bladder of an endangered fish called the totoaba is
putting these communities and ecosystems at risk. This illegal fishery is also
driving the vaquita, a species of porpoise endemic to Mexico, to extinction.
In the Northernmost corner of the Gulf of California in Mexico, several small

an endangered fish called the totoaba is putting these communities and the

this illegal totoaba fishing continues - Mexico’s endemic porpoise, the vaquita.
