Why

Why

Over the past 40 years, Jamaica’s waters were badly abused from overfishing, pollution, coastal development, and natural disasters such as tropical storms. 

 

The most harm came from over fishing – to the point where the fish population was unable to replenish itself. Over fishing not only harmed the reef and marine life, it also endangered the very livelihoods of the fisher families in the White River area. Something had to be done to restore both the marine life and also fishermen’s livelihoods and income.
