Illegal Conch Busted in Marine Reserve

Two fishermen appeared in the Independence Magistrate Court for possession of unprocessed and undersized conch.   Sanasermo Torres was busted with forty-nine conch and Earl Lamb with eighty-six by rangers of  the Southern Environmental Association in the Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve. Both pleaded guilty and were fined accordingly. The SEA notes that the queen conch is already on a steady decline and may very soon be depleted if the practice of unsustainable harvesting continues.
