By BBN Staff: On June 5, 2019, officers from the Turneffe Atoll Sustainability Association Conservation embarked on a routine patrol within the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve and near Balloon Caye, the patrol team met a fishing vessel and 2 fishermen in the water.
When the fishermen returned to the skiff, the patrol team searched their vessel and found a white crocus bag with 26 lobsters.
The items were confiscated pending further investigations.
The 2 fishermen were arrested and taken to Belize City and later charged for possession of lobsters during the closed season.
The public and fishers are reminded that the lobster season is closed until June 14, 2019.
Fishers are advised to abide by the fisheries regulations.
