Recreational Fisheries (es translation)


Many fishes desired by sport or recreational fishers are large, highly migratory species. These animals are often apex predators and indicators of ocean health. Because they are highly migratory, sport fish may be targeted by fishers in more than one country, complicating management. Belize has a long history of recreational offshore fishing, but the status of preferred stocks is currently unknown. Working with fishers and in tournaments, MarAlliance is helping to characterize the offshore recreational fishery in Belize to better understand the status of our sports fish stocks, especially their age and growth, reproduction, habitat preferences, seasonal preferences, food web dynamics, and diets.
