GUAM: Facebook Report

I found these pictures on Facebook posted by a company on Guam that offers grilling parties. These pictures were posted between February and July 2010. The humphead parrotfish (right) is illegal to poach. The posts bragged about how delicious they were. Sad. Are our people starving that we need to poach these fish? Just terrible.

These are Napoleon wrasse, not illegal to poach as of this writing, but they are monitored. Traditional fishermen don't even like these fish because they're tough, but young sportsmen hunt them for size. It is very difficult here to enforce laws.
