NASA has rated The Bahamas some of the best waters in the world. And, this view has been long held by the many inhabitants of these waters–the fish. With such a vast span of sea, shoals and sandy shores, The Bahamas offers a wide array of fishing experiences from which to choose. From bonefish to big gamefish, the waters surrounding the islands of The Bahamas are sure to provide you with a once in a lifetime fishing experience. Though we are all eager to get out there and start fishing, there are regulations to be followed. The Bahamas Department of Marine Resources announced several amendments to the Fisheries Resources Regulations on Oct. 19, 2007. These changes were intended to accommodate legitimate sport fishing events and tournaments, while still providing greater protection for important fish stocks within the 700-island archipelago.
