This Conservation Unit manages all matters of marine conservation and develops plans and programmes related to the conservation of marine resources.  This is achieved by the monitoring of important fish stocks, conducting assessments of the health of crucial marine habitats, and assisting in the formation and amendment of fisheries legislation which relate to marine conservation.  The protection of endangered or heavily exploited marine resources, such as the sea turtle, spiny lobster, and queen conch, are of immediate interest to the Conservation Unit.  The unit also liaises with the relevant law enforcement agencies concerning the enforcement of fisheries conservation legislation.
