Many Belizeans do not know what the acronym TASA in Belize means, but the NGO is showing its innovative capabilities and the value of the organization by creating solutions that helps to address the core objectives of TASA’s mandate.

While Turneffe is known for its abundant fish, lobster and conch populations, the Turneffe Atoll Sustainability Association (TASA) has been looking at alternative livelihoods for fishers to ensure the sustainability of the area and to relieve fishing pressures.

Working with The Nature Conservancy which has provided technical support and training, TASA is in the testing phase of a seaweed farm. There is a demand for seaweed locally, and the NGO is also exploring the export market for what it feels could be a very lucrative industry.
