It’s a great opportunity to recall the relevance of this Mexican institution which works every day all over Mexico’s coasts with men and women who are committed to accomplish their mission, which is to keep security and protect Mexico’s ocean waters as well as the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf of California, and which have been fighting Narco-crime the last twelve years.

The honor guests next to Mayor Sanchez Vazquez were: Héctor Capetillo, Commander of the 1st Naval Sector; Isaac López Vargas, Captain of San Felipe Port; Colonel Ronaldo Dominguez Ista; and the Fishery Director of Baja California Victor Alonso Ibáñez Esquer.
