Belize pushes for responsible stewardship of world’s oceans
“Belize is also the only country in the world to have developed a national multi-species system of marine tenure and zoning, locally known as managed access. This system has proven reliable as a tool to empower traditional fishers to protect their fishing area.”
Dr. Omar Figueroa, Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment, Sustainable Development & Climate Change, Belize, speaking at the United Nations Ocean Conference, Tuesday.
