Abstract

Mexico has an extensive coastline and a great number of coastal water bodies where intense economic activities take place. Some of the most important and famous touristic sites are located along the coast, and most commercial products are moved through ports. In addition, an increasingly greater proportion of marine protein is produced by aquaculture in coastal water bodies.
