The Belize Fishermen Cooperative Association (BFCA) is sticking to its claim that gillnets are not destructive as Oceana Belize and the Coalition for Sustainable Fisheries claim them to be. In fact, the BFCA has filed a lawsuit against the Ministry of Blue Economy after a statutory instrument was signed banning gillnets in Belize’s waters. Members of the BFCA say that this ban which was enacted by the previous administration has negatively affected them. Executive Director for BCFA Daniel Dawson says that Oceana Belize and the Coalition for Sustainable Fisheries have been misleading the public. Senior Reporter Hipolito Novelo has the details.
