This area is renowned for its rich marine life and has huge economic benefit for the whole of Mexico, bringing nearly five million tourists and providing half the countries fish supply. Pressure from destructive fishing, pollution and uncontrolled tourism development are threatening life in the Aquarium. One of the focuses for this part of the tour is the plight of the world's most endangered porpoise - the vaquita. Greenpeace are calling for a network of marine reserves to be introduced globally in order to control fishing and protect endangered species.
