Summary

Improved compliance, stewardship, and support for fisheries regulations is critical in the Turks and Caicos Islands because fishers target species of conservation concern (hawksbill and green turtles, Nassau grouper, queen conch, and sharks and rays) and operate in and around fragile coral reefs. The project will co-design and deliver outreach and education materials for commercial fishers. These materials will explain the pertinent regulations and the reasoning behind them, using formats accessible to non-English speakers and those struggling with literacy.
