Fishermen: Vendors exploiting us

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.
