Video spells out need to retain grouper ban

As part of the campaign to maintain the fishing ban around the Grouper Spawning grounds the REEF Grouper Moon Project has produced a short video spelling out the desperate need to keep the protection which is due to expire this December. The video involves local fishermen as well as experts from REEF and the DoE. Having been fished to the point of extinction the campaigners are pushing hard for more protection in the hop of allowing the fish to regenerate. The video offers a haunting reminder of how the fish was almost lost through over fishing during spawning.
