Belize on the high seas: Improving safety for fishing vessels and pursuing quotas in South Pacific

Posted: Thursday, October 27, 2022. 3:50 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: Belize is hoping to make a splash on the high seas where fishing is concerned.

With stocks dwindling here, Cabinet has approved that Belize accedes to the Convention on the Conservation and Management of High Seas Fishery Resources in the South Pacific Ocean to enable Belize to participate as a voting member and influence the allocation of fishing quotas in the South Pacific Ocean to Belize.

Cabinet also approved the entry by Belize, by way of Senate ratification of the 2012 Cape Town Agreement, to enhance safety standards and requirements for Belize registered high seas fishing vessels as well as strengthen efforts to combat illegal, unreported and underregulated fishing activities.

High-seas vessels are monitored and registered by the International Merchant Marine Registry of Belize (IMMARBE).
