|Gladden Spit & Silk Caye Marine Reserve|
Lunar cycles play a vital role in fishing and nowhere in Belize as grandiosely as at Gladden Spit Marine Reserve off the coast of Placencia in southern Belize.
Local fishermen recount the stories of Placencia and Hopkins fisherman in the 1920’s who congregated at the “Spit” during the ten day period of the full moon between March and June and landed huge catch. During these fishing trips fishermen observed clouds of “white-milky’ substance in the water and mammoth whale sharks swimming through the clouded waters. In 1997 a team of scientists and local fishermen confirmed that the snappers came together to spawn, filling the water with cloud of eggs and sperm, and that the whale sharks -- filter feeders -- had come to feed on the eggs. This is a combination of events that is both biologically important and thrilling.
