By Rubén Morales Iglesias: The Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation announced that the Queen Conch season will end on Sunday May 14, 2023, since the Queen Conch Production Quota for the 2022-2023 Fishing Season has been completed.

The fishing community is informed that all conch fishing activities must stop on this date until the next fishing season begins on October 1, 2023.

“It’s important to respect this closure and refrain from harvesting or purchasing Queen Conch during this time,” the Ministry of Blue Economy and Civil Aviation said in a statement posted on social media.

“By doing so, we can help ensure the sustainability of this important species and protect our marine ecosystem.”

The Fisheries Department – Belize also advises restaurant owners and everyone else who may have conch in their possession to use up or dispose of all Queen Conch meat in their possession on or before Sunday, May 14, 2023.

MBECA asked all concerned to do our part to support responsible and sustainable fishing practices in Belize.

The Fisheries Department said any illegal fisheries activity may be reported by calling 224-4552 or 223-2623.
