A group of specialist professionals in the cultivation of bivalve mollusks, all of them marine biologists, constitute the company, their experience in the experimental cultivation of other species like the oyster, the lion hand scallop , the catarina scallop and pearl oysters, motivated them to begin this commercial adventure.


All the research efforts added during more than 15 years, as well as the Government's of Baja California Sur, Mexico resolved support, made possible the beginning of activities of Perlas del Cortez.


The company produces half pearls or mabés and  harvest of free pearls. All the pieces have a fundamental characteristic, the quality of the incomparable mother pearl that has distinguished the native pearls from the Gulf of California.


The Aquaculturists from Perlas del Cortez make their best effort so the final product has the best quality, providing the necessary cares in order that, after implanting the animals, they let the nature creates its own miracle, the pearls."
