With 24 years of country-based experience working with large fish, turtles, fisheries, and the tourism sector in Belize, MarAlliance’s work with large iconic marine wildlife began here. Our multi-pronged approach to big fish conservation integrates fisheries-dependent and independent research, tourism, outreach and education, capacity building, and policy support.

Accomplishments

  • Deep sea fishery research expanded with novel findings for several species of sharks, and a baseline completed for finfish species
  • Multiple peer to peer exchanges with MesoAmerican reef country traditional fishers
  • Skills exchange with our Belizean fisher colleagues training Micronesian fishers in sustainable lobster capture, and Honduran, Mexican and Panamanian fishers in marine megafauna monitoring and lionfish capture and processing
  • Completion of marine megafauna monitoring nationally
  • Reached over 1500 students in the MAR kids educational program
  • Co-founded and participate in the National Shark Advisory Committee
