In 2009, we carried out “Mermaids for Sustainable Fish” in Mexico City. On March 31st, 2009, REFORMA featured a video story of four mermaids in a fish market, explaining to the public the difference between sustainable and non-sustainable seafood and how consumers can affect the oceans with their choices. 

On Tuesday, April 2nd, 2009, six mermaids made demonstrations before SAGARPA, the Mexican senate, certain city icons such as the Angel of Independence, and SEMARNAT. They delivered petitions to specific government officials regarding shark protection, creation of marine protected areas, and allocation of resources to incentivize sustainable fishing and regulatory enforcement.
