Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary More Fish. A Healthy Bay.


Welcome to the home of the Oracabessa Bay Fish Sanctuary!

The Sanctuary is a joint project between the Oracabessa Foundation and the St. Mary Fishermen's Cooperative. We began work in late 2008 and the Sanctuary became officially 'Gazetted' (i.e.: legalized) by the Jamaican Government on May 7, 2010.

We're proud of how far we've come since 2008 and hope the rest of the site provides a glimpse into our journey so far. But we have a far way to go! We need as much help as we can get and hope that you'll consider coming on board as we continue our efforts to build "A Healthy Bay That Provides for All Community Members".

NOTE: We are building the site as we go. Please excuse us as we work as quickly as we can to fill in all the relevant bits. Don't hesitate to contact us if you don't find what you are looking for.
