Tobago fish haul, most of which is exported....

A Tobago fishing vessel, The Capital of Paradise 1, brought in a 10,000-pound haul of blue marlin, yellow fin tuna, and albacore last Friday.

Seven thousand pounds of this will be exported to the United States as high-grade fish and the rest will be sold on the domestic market.

In a release issued yesterday by the Office of the Chief Secretary, Tobago House of Assembly, Department of Information, it said the vessel was owned and operated by the Fish Processing Company of Tobago Limited (FIPCOT), a special-purpose company set up by the THA in 2009 to support the development of a Tobago-based commercial fishing industry.

Llewellyn Ellis, who captained the vessel for the last three years said, “every trip we basically bring in about ten to 12 thousand pounds of fish. We export some, and the by-catch is sold on the local market in Tobago.” Fisherman Lorris Horsford, who also works on the vessel, said “FIPCOT was designed to create employment and training for people in the industry, and to help Tobago fishermen see fishing as FIPCOT’s mandate, to help develop and diversify Tobago’s commercial fishing industry by making it more efficient and competitive, and by reducing the seasonality of fishing activities.
