Wednesday 29th April 2020

From 1st May, Lobster and Parrotfish (Chub) are in Closed Season.

The Antigua & Barbuda Fisheries Division will be actively enforcing the Closed Season for all listed species. All fishers, vendors, restaurants and retailers are advised that it is illegal for a person to fish for, take, place for sale, purchase or have in possession any of the listed species during the closed season.

Failure to comply carries a maximum fine of EC$50,000. Please also note that the use of a local vessel for fishing without registration carries a maximum fine of EC$100,000. We ask all stakeholders to please adhere to the fisheries rules and regulations which help to secure sustainable fisheries for all.
