The Bluefield Bay fish sanctuary, Jamaica
Overfishing doesn’t just upset the balance of nature. It has a catastrophic impact on fishing communities who depend on healthy fish stocks for their livelihood.
That’s why the fishermen of Bluefields Bay in Jamaica decided to take matters into their own hands and sort out a problem that had devastated their economy.
They spent several years persuading the Jamaican government to set Bluefields aside as a marine sanctuary. Thanks to their efforts, fishing is now banned within the bay and the mangrove swamps are being protected so that fish will once again breed in the shallows.
