I just read an article from the fisheries dept in the Bahamas that prohibits foreign boats from harvest Conch. This has upset a group of boaters who make a pilgrimage there annually and the group is now vacationing in the Florida Keys in protest to this and other new fishing regulations imposed. Q; Is Conch a protected species in Belize?

I'll be happy to discuss my avatar with anyone who knows what it is.

They seem to like the springtime best--not too hot and not too cold, crocuses in bloom and a freshness in the, water, I mean.;)

Seriously, it usually ends right before I get there and starts up a day after I leave. Don't go with me.

I was going to get a life, but this was easier.
