The bad weather conditions persisted. In the morning two small boats were observed crossing the ZTA, and after 12:00 some targets were spotted on the radar northwest outside of the ZTA. At 16:00 we detected a small boat fishing in the ZTA Extension, with two nets in the water. They finished retrieving the second net around 17:00 and they left the area. There were also some small boats south of the ZTA in the Vaquita Refuge, and during the evening there was no activity recorded.
