Coral Harbour Base, (RBDF): The Royal Bahamas Defence Force acknowledges that the crawfish season has reopened and is on high alert to ensure this valuable and much sought after resource is protected from those who seek to poach or illegally harvest it.
Royal Bahamas Defence Force assets have been monitoring popular crawfish harvesting areas to deter and intercept would be offenders. During the last two months, some two arrests of persons fishing with compressors or possession of the resource out of season were made by RBDF vessels.
The Force remains poised to guarding our heritage by ensuring laws protecting sustainable harvesting of marine resources are adhered to.
