Fish Landing Facility at Guayaguayare handed over to Ministry

Thursday, July 6 2017

On Wednesday June 28, the Fish Landing Facility located at Guayaguayare was officially handed over to the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries by National Energy Corporation of Trinidad and Tobago (National Energy).

Minister of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries, Senator Clarence Rambharat received the keys from President of National Energy, Dr Vernon Paltoo.

Rambharat, who said he was happy to receive the keys on behalf of Guayaguayare, shared his two-point plan for the use and maintenance of the Guayaguayare Fish Landing facility, based on discussions to be had with the Member of Parliament.

According to Rambharat, the plan includes making the facility available to the community for uses beyond fisheries.

He said possibilities included food processing, particularly smoked fish, a Mayaro brand of fish, and an east coast brand of chilled or frozen fish.

The second point in the plan involved having discussions with the leadership in the fisheries sector.

In his opening remarks, NEC President Dr Vernon Paltoo said, “The facility was conceptualized to promote the economic sustainability of the community.” The facility, he said, had been completed in 2012 at a cost of US$5 million as part of the Port of Galeota Phase 1 Project. It was intended to provide the fishing community of Mayaro and Guayaguayare with a space to carry out fishing-related activities including boat and net repair. The fish landing facility is equipped with fuel, water, ice and cold storage as well as 25 lockers, washrooms and parking space.
