Excerpt: Guadalupe Island, or Isla Guadalupe ( ) is a volcanic island located 241 kilometers (150 statute miles) off the west coast of Mexicos Baja California peninsula and some 400 kilometers (250 statute miles) southwest of the city of Ensenada in Baja California state, in the Pacific Ocean. The two other Mexican island groups in the Pacific Ocean that are not on the continental shelf are Revillagigedo Islands and Rocas Alijos. The 2008 census recorded a population of 15 persons on the island. Guadalupe is part of Ensenada delegacion, one of the 24 delegaciones or subdivisions of Ensenada municipality of the Mexican state of Baja California. Ensenada delegacion and Chapultepec delegacion together form the city of Ensenada, the municipal seat of the namesake municipality. The postal code of Guadalupe Island is 22997. Campo Oeste (West Camp, also called Campo Tepeyac, with 15 buildings) is a small community of abalone and lobster fishermen, located on the western coast, specifically on the north side of West Anchorage, a bay that provides protection from the strong winds and swells that whip the islands during winter. Generators provide electricity, and a military vessel brings 30,000 liters of fresh water. The number of fishermen varies annually depending on the fishing season. Ten months of the year the 30 families of the fishing cooperative Abuloneros and Langosteros of Guadalupe Island are present. Additional temporary fishing camps are Campo Norte (North Camp, four buildings), Campo Lima (Campo Corrals) (one building) and Arroyitos (four buildings).
