SUPPORT FOR THE CLEAN-UP OF SARGASSUM
ON SAINT LUCIA’S SOUTH-EAST COAST BEACHES.
March 2018
The Department of Fisheries, through the Climate Change Adaptation in the Eastern Caribbean Fisheries Sector (CC4FISH) project, will be embarking on a series of initiatives to assist coastal communities that are most severely impacted by the influx of Sargassum along the coastline.
Therefore, the Department of Fisheries invites residents in the communities of Praslin, Dennery, Micoud and Savannes to community meetings to discuss proposed beach clean-ups and management plan for the Sargassum seaweed.
The schedule for the community meetings are as follows:
 Dennery – March 6th (at the Dennery Primary School) at 5:30 pm
 Micoud – March 7th (at the Micoud Secondary School) at 5:30 pm, and
 Savannes – March 8th (at the Savannes Bay Fish Landing Site) at 3:00 pm
 Praslin – March 12th (at the Praslin Community Centre) at 5:30 pm
Persons who own tractors, dump trucks, farmers, fishers, community groups, church and youth groups, environmental clubs, school clubs, business owners are asked to attend the meetings. All community residents are also invited.
The Department of Fisheries looks forward to the participation of everyone at these important community meetings.

Together, we can make a difference!
