The Department and Ministry of Environment has clarified rules governing fishing from shore in Cayman after large swathes of coastline were newly designated as no-take marine parks.
One of George Town's most popular snorkelling sites, the Wreck of the Cali in the harbour, is now off limits to snorkellers and divers unless they get special permission from the Port Authority.
Regulations that rezone an area of marine park into an port anchorage area will not adversely impact the marine environment, Port Authority Director Joey Woods says.
A decade after public consultation on the expansion of Cayman's marine parks began, and two years after the plan was approved by Cabinet, regulations on the expanded protected zones were gazetted on Friday.
Cayman’s no-fishing zones will be significantly expanded once Cabinet approves new regulations for the territory’s marine parks.
