10. Well from what I've heard that many aren't accepting buy out offers.

The offers would pay for them to turn in permits, delay fishing, or a complete buyout to permanently give up fishing rights. The Wikipedia article says that estimates say it would only cost $26 million to end the fishery in the northern Sea of Cortez. But what is most infuriating is that some of them are saying they hope the vaquita go extinct because then they can fish with no restrictions.
I just caught up with this issue. I try to stay up to date, but I had been thinking that he "critically endangered" was like the northern right whale, a very small, but stable population. I have been in a panic since I've found out that the population is crashing. I immediately sent a contribution to Sea Shepherd and I have all but completely decided to shut down contributions to Sierra Club and Defenders of Wildlife to send them more.
Anyway, the fishermen from what I have read have no real connection to the Sea of Cortez. The Mexican government moved them there to exploit the resources. So they have no respect for what is there. It is just something to be taken.

Another infuriating item, why isn't this in the news daily?
Sadly though, I think you are right and their fate is sealed. I will be very depressed, never understood that feeling, but getting there now.
