To evaluate adherence to the provisions of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries in the Gulf of California, a survey was applied to 148 stakeholders (fishermen, managers, academics and fish farmers).The questionnaire, which included 448 questions related to the Code's terms, was proposed by the World Wildlife Fund for Nature and the National Fisheries Institute of Mexico. For the analysis, a decision table was constructed using a traffic light classification (green, yellow and red) to assess the level of adherence to each provision. Results suggest that fisheries in the Gulf of California moderately follow the Code, but it is necessary to review strategies and actions to improve adherence to some principles.The results are a regional base line on how stakeholders perceive responsible fisheries in the Gulf of California.
