This is an iniciative that the PVEM (Partido Verde Ecologista de México) proposed 5 years ago that Morena and the PRD were against at that time. Now they voted FOR it. It still has to be passed in the Senado, and they've already taken a step backwards in Comisiones by proposing to permit one more generation of dolphins to be born in captivity, meaning that instead of doing away with their existence in captivity within 25 or so years until all those in captivity die, the industry could exist in some form for another 50 or 60 years. Let's see if this ever gets finalized and passed and published in the Diario de la Federación which would make it law.

But it certainly sends the right message.

Now if we could just get pulpo removed from the Mexican diet and protected.
