Don’t eat parrotfish

Those shopping in supermarkets and even at restaurants serving fish should take care to ensure they are not buying or ordering parrotfish. The Ministry of Environment this year imposed a ban on capturing of the fish. Parrotfish are essential for reef and beach conservation.

Environmentalist Jake Kheel, vice president of the Puntacana Group Foundation, writes in a feature in Diario Libre of the importance of national support for the parrotfish ban and the need to spread awareness among the population. Kheel likewise calls for the support of all to find alternate work for the fishermen that make a living selling parrotfish and for support from the general population. He observes that recent social media support to Ministry of Environment efforts to stop the sale of parrotfish in Puerto Plata is evidence the population is catching on to the important environmental conservation issue.
