Divers have noticed the decline in the region's reefs, says David Placencia, coordinator of reef monitoring for the Centro Ecolgico Akumal (CEA), a non-governmental organisation in Akumal, 100 kilometres south of Cancn.
"They say they won't be coming back," Placencia told Tierramrica.
Studies by CEA found that a key reef-building species, Montastraea annularis, has suffered a dramatic decline. Twelve years ago it comprised 45 percent of the reefs around Akumal but in 2010 it had fallen to less than nine percent, he said.
Nutrients and contaminants from sewage promoted the growth of algae, which smother the corals, said Placencia.
There is no sewage treatment in the area, so the polluted runoff goes directly into the groundwater. "There definitely has been a big change in the reefs here," he added.
"And if they are charged with environmental violations, they just pay the fine and keep building," Placencia said.
