Commission Agenda Item No. 10
Mexico-Texas Border Fishing Issues
November 1998

I. DISCUSSION: Enforcement of commercial fishing regulations by Texas game wardens in the Gulf of Mexico along the lower Texas coast, the Rio Grande River, and Falcon Lake has indicated an increase in the incidents of commercial fishermen from Mexico fishing illegally in Texas waters. These commercial fishermen are using means and methods that are illegal in Texas and are detrimental to the aquatic resources of this state.
