Pulling in a fishing net north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Several men on a beach heave on a fishing net that is partially submerged in the ocean. Over a dozen pelicans fly around the net waiting for an easy meal.Puerto Vallarta is a port town on Mexico's west coast. It is a popular port of call for cruise ships and has developed a vibrant tourism industry. The town is celebrated for its constant tropical weather as well as its beaches and adjoining islands. Recently, pollution from inadequate city sewage capabilities has caused health problems with its coastal waters, leading to a downturn in tourism.
