By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Belizean and U.K. scientists are working together to tackle plastic pollution in Belize.

Experts plan to develop next steps to tackle ocean pollution and support a healthy marine environment.

In addition, specialized UK government agencies, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) is also reviewing data collection within Marine Protected Areas (MPA) providing recommendations to improve monitoring and collection of MPA data.

The UK’s Marine Management Organisation (MMO) is also working with the Government of Belize to review Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) fishing in Belize waters and delivering an independent review of the rights-based fishing Managed Access Programme, building a better understanding of fishing activity within and surrounding Belize’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) and identifying where new technologies may help monitoring and enforcement.

Cefas is also collaborating with the Belize Agriculture Health Authority (BAHA) and the Ministry of Agriculture to support safe and sustainable aquaculture, improve biosecurity and strengthen regulatory frameworks for animal health and trade.
