The small scale reef fishery on the central north coast of Jamaica in 2000-2001: a biological and socio-economic survey
- This report provides detailed catch and effort information on the reef fishery on the north coast of Jamaica. The study area covered is from Rio Bueno, Trelawny, to Salem, St. Ann, a 22 km long segment of the central north coast. The reef fishery there is typical of the rest of the fishery on this coast, which is believed to be one of the most overfished in the Caribbean. The resource is easily accessible and it is an important source of food and employment, despite its overexploited state.
