It doesn’t take many days in Haiti to realize the amazing resources that The
Bahamas still has (and why we need to protect them).  The fishing pressure
on the Haiti coast is staggering.  We will post a lot more in the days to come,
but, for now, a few images of the fishery.

About the Author:

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.

    This is simply incredible. Looking forward to learning more about resource use in Haiti.

    Thre is the need for an island-wide mapping of resticted/fishing areas, as we have been asking for years. Please publish your surveyed areas and all relevant instructions, if any, so we can implement them as best we can, waiting for more action. Many thanks.
