United Fishermen Community Oppose New Fisheries Regulations

Tonight, a member of the group calling themselves the United Fishermen Community has come forward to defend the group’s position. In recent weeks, the organisation has been speaking out against new regulations set out by the Fisheries Department that will take effect on July 1. The group believes that the new regulations will negatively impact the livelihoods of fishermen in Belize and claims that no consultations were held. Yesterday, Minister of Blue Economy, Andre Perez flatly rejected the group’s position and called the individual behind the group a politically motivated mischief-maker. However, that man, Ovel Leonardo, told Love News today that that is not the case. According to Leonardo, the group represents over a thousand fishermen, who are vehemently opposed to the change in regulations.
