BELIZE - Belize's fishing industry is about to benefit from some spanish input.

According to the Jamaica-Gleaner, Spain has signed two Memoranda of Under-standing (MOUs) to provide assistance in the fisheries sector. The agreements will also facilitate and promote the joint participation in research projects, productive and commercial development, trade, biotechnology, sustainable management of the marine environment and responsible fishing between governmental, non-governmental bodies and stakeholders.

The first MOU with the Organización del Sector Pesquero y Acuácola del Istmo Centroamericano (OSPESCA), the body charged with the promotion of sustainable management and development of fisheries and aquaculture in Central America, will guide future projects and development in seven Central American countries, including Belize.
