The first edition of the Caribbean Fish Sanctuary Partnership (C-FISH) newsletter is now available. The February 2013 issue is titled “Strengthening community-based fish sanctuaries”. C-FISH is aimed at strengthening the management of fish sanctuaries, also known as marine reserves or ‘no-take’ zones.
Strengthening community-based fish sanctuaries
The Caribbean Fish Sanctuary Partnership is a £2.1-million project funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID) through the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre (CCCCC). The Caribsave Partnership is implementing the project on behalf of DFID and the CCCCC. The four-year project will operate in five countries across the Caribbean; Jamaica, Grenada, St Lucia, Dominica and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
