Hope you are well. Could you please post on the CAMPAM listserve the following video about Jamaica's fish sanctuaries that was produced by Project Moana.
In Jamaica, a partnership approach is being used to tackle the declining fish stocks. Communities, fishing groups, NGOs, government and private sector are coming together to manage and support fish sanctuaries, a type of MPA where no fishing is allowed. Seven of the fourteen fish sanctuaries in Jamaica are being supported by the Caribbean Fish Sanctuaries Partnership (C-FISH) Initiative which provides technical assistance, grants and support toward improving the management of the sanctuaries. Although there are challenges, the future for many of these sanctuaries is bright, with new livelihood opportunities such as eco-tourism on the horizon.
