Patrol

The Bluefields Environmental Protection Association and Bluefields Bay Villas would like to congratulate local efforts that led to Bluefields Bay being declared an aquatic wildlife sanctuary in 2011. It is now illegal to fish in the majority of the Bay. Virgin Vacations and the Travel Foundation paid for buoys to be put out into the water delineating the portion of the Bay that is protected, while BEPA and Bluefields Bay Villas pay for the gas used by the patrol boat that ensures that residents abide by the law and fish in deeper waters.
