Dredging Today – Kamalame Cay on Andros

Damn… this doesn’t paint a pretty picture of the goings on at Kamalame Cay on Andros.  Maybe there is more to the story, but it certainly doesn’t sound super fabulous.

An aquatic breeding ground once teeming with marine life that provided food and much-needed cash in a diminished economy, is now barren due to dredging at nearby Kamalame Cay, according to several local fishermen interviewed by The Nassau Guardian.

Dredging at Kamalame

Kind of crazy that there even is a “Dredging Today” to find this story in.  I’m sure I benefit from dredging in some ways just like I’m sure I benefit in various ways from clear-cutting and mountain top removal mining, but damn… when folks start talking about dredges on the flats, in the creek mouths… well… it makes me cranky.  That this would happen at a lodge that hosts lots of bonefisherman makes me a bit irate.  Maybe I don’t have the whole picture… and I’d hope I don’t, but this sounds like it kind of sucks.
