Regulation of Highly Migratory Species in the Wider Caribbean: A Comparative Analysis of Domestic Fisheries Laws

The goal of this Billfish Foundation commissioned Clinic project was to provide an analysis of the regulation of highly migratory species (including billfish and tuna) in the Wider Caribbean Basin. This was accomplished by developing a principles-based analytical framework to serve as the basis for comparatively analyzing existing laws and regulations for selected countries, territories, and commonwealths within the Wider Caribbean Basin. Based on the results of this analysis, the Clinic team developed policy recommendations for approaches to enhance regional billfish conservation in the Wider Caribbean.
