Will Revised Fisheries Act Affect Tourism?

While the Ministry of Blue Economy makes its rounds across the country consulting with fisher folks, we spoke with the Minister of Tourism earlier today to get his take on the possible impact of the revised Fisheries Act on the travel and leisure sector. After all, visitors flock to Belize to experience our seafood cuisines.

“Initially, I think it’s going to have some impact, but I think with the proper research, with the proper educational campaigns it is going to be beneficial in the long term and we want an industry that is sustainable.  I believe that the Minister of Blue Economy and his team have done a tremendous amount of work in ensuring that they have the right information and making the right decisions and so, in short term, yes it’s going to have an impact, but in the long term it’s going to be for the betterment of the fisher folks.”
