A $35 million fish landing facility, built for Guayaguayare fishermen in 2012, remains unoccupied and underutilised because of poor design and construction.
When the tide comes in, the force of the waves from the Atlantic Ocean cascades into the facility making it impossible for the fishermen to use. They cannot dock at the port either because the harbour was not dredged properly to facilitate landing and the pier is eight feet higher than their pirogues.
