I'm a community-based facilitator for the commercial small-scale fisheries sector in eastern Puerto Rico. Looking forward to learning and contributing to this regional group.
We know that groupers are being greatly affected by climate change and they are highly vulnerable to overfishing. What species are projected to be the most vulnerable to climate change in the fisheries and countries where you work? I would love to learn some more!
Hello everyone! My name is Cat and I am one of the moderators for the SSF Hub. I want to share with you one of our most popular resources on the site from the Caribbean:
User Manual on Queen Conch Aquaculture: Hatchery and Nursery Phases
Does anyone have any experience working with Queen Conch? Do you have additional resources on Queen Conch that you would like us to share in the Resource Library?
journal prompt: Parrot fish are fascinating fish who actually carry a lot of responsibility for the creation of the beautiful and sandy beaches of the Caribbean. Therefore, a decrease in the parrot fish population can have drastic social and economic implication for the Caribbean. What fish are important to the region that you are from and why? Do you have an experience with said fish that you can share?
please feel free to share your response to the journal prompt and respond to others' as well! :)
