NASSAU GROUPER CLOSED SEASON

IT’S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!

Give the gift of healthy Nassau grouper populations this Holiday Season!

Did you know?

The Nassau grouper “Closed Season” begins today (Dec. 1), and continues until Feb. 28.

Remember not to fish, buy, sell or eat Nassau grouper during this time. Let’s give these guys time to breed this winter, so we can eat stew/boil fish and Johnny cake for years to come!

The Nassau grouper is an iconic predator in The Bahamas.

How can you help?

Donate to the Perry Institute for Marine Science. In 2021, our goal is to tag and track up to 50 Nassau grouper off San Salvador to investigate whether there are any active spawning aggregations around the island. Your donations will contribute to our Fisheries Research & Conservation Program, as well as all of our programs, in so many ways!

For example:

$25 = one coral outplanted to reef
$50 = one diseased coral treated
$100 = one coral nursery established
$250 = one transmitter to track Nassau grouper
$500 = one student’s conservation leadership training
$1,000 = one complete coral reef assessment
