The list will ask how residents feel about the ban on pelagic long line fishing… how it feels about a special licencing requirement for trap boats carrying more than 20 traps, including registration, reporting and trap placement restrictions; what are thoughts on a minimum and maximum size restriction for the Nassau Grouper; whether there should also be a minimum size for some Snappers, bonefish and whether there should be a ban on gill nets. There will be a fielding of ideas on regulations for Stone Crab, whether there should be a ban on taking Sea Cucumbers, commercial export of Sharks and Stingrays and a review of the laws governing Lionfish. The town meetings begin this Friday May 8th at the Five Cays Community Center at 7pm; South Caicos is on Monday at the DEMA office at 7pm; Tuesday May 12th for North Caicos at the Adelaide Omelar Primary and next week Friday it will be Grand Turk’s turn at Dillon Hall at 7pm.
