Welcome to St. Lucia’s west coast, an area of outstanding beauty and biodiversity, and the location of the Soufriere Marine Management Area (SMMA) and the Canaries & Anse La Raye Marine Management Area (CAMMA). In this region you will find superb scenery, healthy and diverse coral reefs, valuable fish stocks and attractive beaches extending all the way from Marigot Bay to Anse La Ivrogne. The Soufriere Marine Management Association Inc. is a self-sustained not-for-profit NGO authorized by the Government of St. Lucia to manage both SMMA and CAMMA. Each area is divided into one of five zones: Marine Reserves, Fishing Priority Areas, Multiple Use Areas, Yacht Mooring Areas and Recreational Areas. The Association is mandated to conserve the natural marine environment and ensure sustainable use and development of the Areas particularly within the fishing and tourism sectors. Your support, contributions and ideas help us achieve this mandate.
