Shedd Aquarium researchers document collapse of Nassau Grouper - Jan 18, 2017 - 11:57:13 PM

Grouper_Shedd_Aquarium_Keith_Pamper.jpg
Shedd Aquarium researchers published a study in the Bulletin of Marine Science today in partnership with the University of Exeter, Perry Institute for Marine Science and the Bahamas National Trust documenting the collapse of a Nassau grouper, Epinephelus striatus, spawning aggregation in The Bahamas. An important fishery in The Bahamas, the study can be used as an indicator that, despite existing protections, Nassau grouper populations are declining, suggesting a need for adapted management.

Fish spawning aggregations are fleeting gatherings of a large number of individuals for reproductive purposes. Though beneficial for reproduction, the behavior exposes species to over-fishing because the aggregations are predictable in both time and space. In fact, the Nassau grouper represents one of the best known examples of a fishery collapse due to over-fishing spawning aggregations throughout its range in the Caribbean and Bahamas...

In response to Anglican Archdeacon James Palacious comments at Majority Rule celebrations - Jan 18, 2017 - 8:59:30 PM

It was painfully disheartening to read about Jimmy Palacious’ shameful pronouncement that black people “breed too much.”  It was all too reminiscent of Richard Lightbourne’s equally disrespectful and demeaning comments, demonstrating a total lack of empathy and understanding of a system of miseducation and oppression that continues to keep our communities disempowered.

Instead of disassociating ourselves from the social problems we see in society and casting blame on others, often times the most vulnerable, we need to examine the systems of which we are all apart of and advocate for fundamental change to these systems.

Secondary debris clean up needs to happen on Grand Bahama Island - Jan 18, 2017 - 8:17:22 PM

Dear Editor,

I am writing to express my concern regarding the amount of debris still evident all around the island.

It is time for the secondary clean up. Debris needs to be removed and the streets of Grand Bahama Island should be made clean, safe and secure for drivers and pedestrians once again.

It is disturbing to see that road signs are still down, several are in good order and just need to be erected for drivers to note the speed limits...

Sidney Collie’s Statement on Prime Minister’s Failure on a New Constituency Map - Jan 18, 2017 - 7:44:24 PM

Sidney Collie, Chairman of the Free National Movement (FNM), issued the following statement on the Prime Minister failing to table the Boundaries Commission report in Parliament today:

“How can this Government plan to call an election when they have repeatedly failed to deliver on their responsibility of finishing the Boundaries Commission report? We know the embattled Prime Minister and his PLP Government have tried to intimate female voters with their dress code tactics, yet it seems they are willing to go even further by preventing Bahamians from learning which constituency they will be voting in. This is a desperate act of a desperate party trying to cling to power after years of disastrous, incompetent, and failed leadership...”

Bahamians Awake results of Bahamas Outlook survey - Jan 18, 2017 - 6:53:49 PM

Bahamians Awake, a group created by a team of young and creative Bahamians who have grown discontented with the direction of the country administered an online survey via Facebook earlier this month. Their current disenchantment with the leadership and direction of the country escalated as the Baha Mar saga unfolded and the populace watched how the government’s handling and what many perceive as bias towards the Chinese led to the stalling of the project, redundancy of 2,000 employees and the ousting of the original developer.

The survey’s respondents consisted of a total sample size of 485 people between ages of 18-65 across The Bahamas...

Weeks after 150 Bahamians were sent home following the closure of the Casino operations, Memories staff are worried they will be next.

Employees have been told the property would reopen in May 2017 following hurricane Matthew, but there is no indication of any work being done to ensure this happens. Workers have no idea if or when they will be paid. Where are the answers?
