THE Bahamas cannot supply its local spiny lobster market while simultaneously meeting the demand of a “nearly insatiable” Chinese export market, Bahamas National Trust (BNT) Executive Director Eric Carey said yesterday, adding lobster numbers have declined over the years.

#Mr Carey questioned what officials see as the maximum sustainable yield and insisted the government ensures this number is not more than the environment can sustain.

#Last week, Agriculture and Marine Resources Minister Renward Wells confirmed the government was awaiting a response from the People’s Republic of China on whether it will approve the large-scale import of live spiny lobster from the Bahamas for Chinese consumption.
