Notes from the Field: The Bahamas, November 2019
In addition, we facilitated a meeting between the Royal Bahamas Defense Force and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s Law Enforcement Program to discuss areas of shared concern related to illegal fishing in The Bahamas’ northern waters. By combining our extensive enforcement experience with our local partners’ knowledge and expertise, we will be able to develop an effective, realistic MPS Plan responsive to local needs.
A final draft of the MPS Plan is expected to be finalized and distributed to our partners for review early in 2020. As we move into 2020, we will be focused on establishing and formalizing a stakeholder workshop to develop a Strategic Plan based on the MPS Plan.
