Delsie sure had a great time at Waruguma eating delicious lobster tails, but she will have to wait some time till she tastes them again as the lobster season has officially closed.

In a press release sent out today, the Belize Fisheries Department informs fishers, wholesalers and retailer of seafood products and the general public that the closed season for the Caribbean Spiny Lobster, Panulirus argus, begins today Tuesday, February 15.
