No ban in place on parrotfish - Agriculture Minister

Agriculture and Fisheries Minister Audley Shaw, says there is no ban in place on parrotfish. 
 
At a post-Sectoral Debate news briefing at his Ministry yesterday, Shaw said extensive research and consultations have been undertaken with local and international experts to examine the issue. 
 
Acknowledging the concerns expressed by lobby groups, Shaw said there is no conclusive evidence that the consumption of  parrotfish is the cause of  the depletion of  coral reefs.
 
He added that there is no scientific basis on which to impose a ban on parrotfish.
