Eduardo Batllori Sampedro, head of the Environment and Urban Development State Secretariat (Secretaría de Desarrollo Urbano y Medio Ambiente: SEDUMA Yucatán), declared that there is no alert for red tide in the Yucatan coasts until now.
The official said that what local fishermen reported could be the normal seasonal growth of the algae.
There was fear in the fishing sector because if confirmed the red tide was confirmed, the octopus season would be threatened. Each year the octopus fishing season goes from August 1 to December 15.
However, Batllori Sampedro anticipated that the Federal Commission for the Protection against Sanitary Risks (Comisión Federal para la Protección contra Riesgos Sanitarios: Cofepris) already collected samples that will be tested in order to determine whether or not it is a red tide.
Batllori asked the local fishermen to remain calm, and said that an alert will not be generated until corroborating the facts.
