Saba Bank: Fisheries

The Saba Bank supports a vibrant local fishing industry. Fishing effort focuses mainly on a trap fishery, targeting lobster and deep water red fish (snapper) (Dilrosun 2000, Toller 2008, van Gerwen 2013, Boonstra 2014), as well as bottom drop lining for red fish (snapper). Other common fishing activities include hand lining and trap fishing for red hind (grouper) as well as trolling for pelagic species.
