I am chairman of St. Lucia's diving association and run Scuba St. Lucia
here in St. Lucia. We are having another boundary dispute with fishermen.
A key element of where to place the boundary is allowing enough of a
non-reef buffer zone between the area where fish are taken and the coral

Does anyone have any valid information from scientific studies which seem
to indicate minimum distances between the 2 areas?

If so, would you please forward any pertinent information to me at the
above address?

Thank you for your help.
