Isla Cerralvo, Mexico

Isla Cerralvo is an uninhabited island located off the Cerralvo Canal coast near La Paz, Baja California Sur, Mexico. In 2009 the Mexican government changed the island name from historical name "Isla Cerralvo" to "Isla Jacques Cousteau" in honor of French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau (1910–1997) who had led many expeditions in this area.

Isla Cerralvo is a prime location for big game fishing as there is abundant marine life surrounding this island due to underwater topography and ocean currents. There are abundant golden grouper, marlin, sailfish, swordfish or broadbill, and other game fish in these waters.
