Fishing banned in area north of St George’s

Restricted fishing area: Fishing is banned in the area outlined in red until June 1.

Fishing has been banned in an area north of St George’s until the end of June to protect a species of fish.

A Government notice said that Walter Roban, the home affairs minister, had ordered an immediate prohibition of fishing in a fish aggregation area for the conservation of the blue-striped grunt.

The ban took effect last Saturday and will run to the end of June.

The area is enclosed by a line running in a north-easterly direction from St. Catherine’s Point to the southern channel marker 12 and another along the southern boundary of the southern channel to the southern channel marker 16.

The protected area continues along a southwesterly direction to 32 degrees 23.4 minutes North, 64 degrees 41.4 minutes and on in a southeasterly direction to Fort George.
