Providenciales, 13 May 2015 – Just over two weeks left to go before the stoned crab season is closed; the Department of Maritime Affairs announcing this week that there are some changes to the Fisheries Protection Ordinance Regulations which will take effect on June 1, 2015. DEMA warns that any person found to be in contravention of these amendments will be committing an offence that is punishable by a fine, imprisonment or both.
