The Bahamas Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources
The Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources in The Bahamas has launched their new website. According to a press release about the launch:

This marks a milestone in the development of the agricultural industry and is yet another example of our efforts to modernize the sector and make the best use of modern technology.

The site is linked to three other sister sites already established by the Department of Marine Resources, BAIC and the Department of Cooperatives. Each of these websites deals with a specific area of focus and together offer a diverse menu of services. This website is designed to become an important tool in the continued education of Bahamian farmers, as well as in the effective marketing of farm produce and the facilitation of international trade.

The aim is to make the Ministry more easily accessible to the public thus enhancing good governance in the sector and increasing its productivity; and in this regard the public is now advised that all the forms necessary to be filed for services rendered by this Ministry are now available on-line, at this website.

The URL for the site is www.bahamas.gov.bs/agriculturemarine.

    My wife and I will be on the Carnival cruise ship Liberty which will anchor/dock at Half Moon Cay on or about 09/29/2013. My wife will have with her her service dog and we would like for the dog to be able to disembark with us while in The Bahamas. If the dog is unable to disembark, we are unable to disembark either as we cannot leave her aboard the ship unattended. About a month ago I sent a completed “Application to Import Domestic Animals Into the Commonwealth of the Bahamas” along with a $10.00 money order. To date I have received no response to that application. Would you PLEASE let me know when we might expect your approval? We’re barely six weeks out from our sail date and I’d like to have this handled well in advance of that. Thank you very much.

    On February 10, 2014 I sent $20 cash and the paperwork for my two cats that live aboard with us and sent AGAIN 4/17/14. We are sailing to Bimini on THURSDAY 5/22/14 and STILL have not received ANY reply. You now have $40 of my money. I have taken them to the vet and got their health certificate, at this point I don’t know what I am supposed to do. They MUST come as this is where we live.
