The Belize Fisheries Department reminds fisher-folk that the lobster season closes Feb. 15th and continues through to June fourteenth. According to fisheries, the law states that no person shall catch, buy, sell or have in their possession the spiny lobster. To do so would be an offense that is liable on summary conviction. The department also reminds all fisher-folks who have lobster traps in the waters of Belize to remove the traps from the seabed.
