Isla Mujeres Tortugranja handed over to new owner

Isla Mujeres, Q.R. — After the end of their agreement, the National Fisheries Institute will take over the island’s Tortugranja. On Friday, employees began to remove items from inside the facilities.

Although the director of Tortugranja was outside of Isla Mujeres at the time, she confirmed that Tortugranja would be handed over to the federal agency.

Dispatch manager, Juan Martín Pérez, said the closure of the property was part of the delivery-receipt process, and in this case, the property belongs to Instituto Nacional de Pesca (INAPESCA).

“We are not closing anything. We are handing the place over to its owner, Inapesca, since they were the ones who made the request a few weeks ago,” he commented.

He insisted that the facilities belong to Inapesca, not to the city council and as such, they began the delivery-reception process.
