Audley Shaw (centre), discusses the importance of preserving the Jamaica Iguana with Assistant Curator of iguanas at the Audubon Zoo in the United States, Melanie Litton (right), at the health screening of the Jamaican Iguana at the Hope Zoo in Kingston on February 6.

The Jamaica Iguana Health Screening programme, which is funded by the United Nations Development Programme implemented Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme, is designed to, among other things, increase the population of the reptile in the hills of Hellshire, St. Catherine.

The Ministry

Welcome to the official website of the Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries.

The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries (MICAF) has been charged with the responsibility of driving the integration of the production of primary agricultural produce along all the stages of the supply chain through to value added and facilitating full commercialization of outputs of the agriculture, manufacturing, and service sectors.

We have, therefore, placed much energy and enthusiasm into the development of this website to provide timely information on the Ministry, our agencies and programmes.
