At Mathieu's Delicatessen on middle St next to Dr Daniel's clinic, we have free credit card fold out Seafood Guides to Belize. These are produced by the ScienceToAction, agriculture ministry, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Research Academy and Healthy Reefs for Healthy People organzations.

The Guide comprehensively lists what has a complete ban on it (Parrotfish, diced lobster, Blue tang AMONGST others), when the closed seasons are for Conch, Lobster, Nassau Grouper, Wild Shrimp, Hicatee, Size and catch limits, Special permits and laws regarding Sea Cucumber, Fillets, traps etc and a short write up on "why you should care", "you are what you eat", Lionfish, and "making a difference"

Please drop by and pick one up! They slip easily into a wallet or small purse.

We have already seen "a very prestigious" establishment reported to Fisheries for serving Parrot Fish on their menu, and we see now the restaurateur in Caye Caulker successfully prosecuted for undersized lobster - MAKE A DIFFERENCE NOW and be in the know about what is permitted and what is not.

Is there a season on barracuda? I have heard conflicting opinions on this fish.

There are certain times of the year when Barracuda is more likely to be toxic - maybe that is what people are talking about.

I think it is the really hot summer months but would have to check with a fisherman. But everybody that I know that has ever been poisoned by barracuda was during the months of july and august.

I thought barracuda toxicity was a size issue?

I thought the toxicity was related to a bacteria/algae that accumulates in the apex predators and is possibly related to a certain algal bloom that may have its own cycle?
