In favor of the economic reactivation of the historic capital of Las Californias, this Saturday, September 19, the first fishing tournament was held since the arrival of the pandemic, informed the director of Loreto Tourism, Felipe Silva Ortega.
The municipal presidency, headed by Arely Arce Peralta, in coordination with the Secretariat of Fisheries, Aquaculture, and Agricultural Development, headed by Andrés Córdoba Urrutia and organizations related to the sector, worked to develop this tournament, complying with the protocols established by the Secretariat of health.
Felipe Silva shared that this tournament is also the celebration of the XXVIII anniversary of the Santo Domingo Valley Hunting, Shooting and Fishing Club, which for 27 continuous years carried out this tournament in Loreto since the destination was part of the municipality of Comondú.
He explained that the registration of the same was digitally and without promotion, with participants from the state only and some foreigners who reside here.
Likewise, the weigh-in, which will open from 12 noon to 5 p.m., will not be public and the winners will be announced virtually, along with the compilation of videos that the contestants will deliver about the time of their fishing. The prizes will be delivered later individually.
