Dead parrotfish appeal launched

The Bermuda National Trust is offering a reward of $2,000 for any information that might lead to the arrest and successful prosecution of the person who killed more than forty parrot fish.

Fisheries wardens spotted a male “acting suspiciously” in the water near Cooper’s Island Nature Reserve on July 1.

When they approached him he held up his empty hands but when they inspected the area they found a spear with the dead parrot fish attached to it.

BNT president Tim Marshall told The Royal Gazette: “Every parrot fish is a national treasure in its own beautiful right and Bermudians should be outraged at the senseless slaughter that took place.

“We must bering to justice anyone who harms our heritage and puts in harms way our reefs.”

Anyone with information can call the Fishtips hotline on 705-3474 or Crime Stoppers Bermuda anonymous hotline on 800-8477
