I am sure they are right about the amount of damage and bycatch.
Having experienced the damage done in the Gulf of Mexico we can see that it has taken many years to recover from the indescriminate
In the U.S. we finally figured out what damage was being done and took actions to manage the fishery. Hopefully it was not too little too late.
In Belize it may well be a whole different story...I am not sure that the government will take the necessary action but I hope so.
Next in line should be the shrimp farms. The effluent from these farms is not helpful either.
