In the SE of Mexico, in the Peninsula of Yucatan and particularly in the State from Yucatan the Sea Cucumber, is a potential resource of enormous economic and social importance. Before the fact that the majority of the fisheries they are found overexploited in the platform of the Peninsula of Yucatan, they are suggested the possibility to consider this resource as a diversification of the fishing in the state of Yucatan. It is important to recall that the same supplies and equipments utilized in the fishing of spiny lobster Panulirus argus through the dive semi-autonomous (hooka) they can be utilized for the fishing of the Sea Cucumber. For which, the biological-fishing investigation work present has the purpose to contribute to determine the bases of the aprovechamiento of the Sea Cucumber through the fishing of promotion, to achieve a sustainable management and the adoption of a focus precautorio for this potential respected fishery in the book: "Sustainability and responsible fishing in Mexico: evaluation and management", edition 2000 of the INP; in coordination with the authorities of the National Institute of the Fishing (INP), located in Yucalpetén, Progress, Yucatan. In the state of Yucatan has knowledge that this resource has been itself exploiting since approximately 8 years ago and that an illegal fishing exists. It was offered fishing of promotion in the year 2001 in the state of Yucatan, but because of the effects of the red tide was not possible to have results therefore the populations of cucumber severely were affected. For which the purpose is that in a way formal and continuous, they be generated basic know-how on the biology, ecology and population dynamics of the resource, with two fundamental objectives: to meet sufficient elements to evaluate the regenerative capacity of the wild populations and to conclude in the possibility to carry or not, to tip a commercial capture
