a shark fishing trip
The fishing tournament at Caribana 2016

Barbuda is well known for its sports fishing and has competitive fishing tournaments at various times in the village.There is good bone-fishing, particularly because of the protected Lagoon – a Ramsar site and one of the largest in the Eastern Caribbean – which acts as a nursery for many species. Our fishers ship lobster and conch to other islands on a weekly basis but our fisheries are subject to strict conservation guidelines, so please be aware of these and follow this link for more information.
