  • Dont Stop Talking Fish - Event was totally sucessful! In celebration of USVI fisheries heritage and culture, on Saturday June 28 at the close of the Territorially designated Fisher Appreciation Week, the first ever FREE Don't Stop Talking Fish Family Fun Day and Cultural Event (a Marine Outreach and Education USVI Style project) took place from 2p-12am at Camp Arawak, Great Pond, the current location of the St. Croix East End Marine Park office! Over 500 people came out in support of OUR USVI fisheries resources and fishers! We made front page news in the St. Croix Avis (June 29), VI Daily News (June 30) and VI Source online (June 29)! There was also an editorial in the St. Croix Avis (June 29) commending the event and its aim.

    Thanks for your participation and support. Looking forward to the next one, hopefully in St. Thomas, June 27, 2015.
