Close to 50 fishermen of Matelot, Grande Riviere
and Toco, who lost their boats, boat engines, seines,
nets and other fishing gears due to rough seas and
large swells last week, are to receive assistance.
The assurance was given by parliamentary secretary
in the Ministry of Agriculture, Lands and Fisheries,
Avinash Singh, and MP for Toco/Sangre Grande Glenda
Jennings-Smith during a data collecting exercise and
food distribution at the Toco Community Center,
Cemetery Street, Toco, on Tuesday.
Both Singh and Jennings-Smith, however, said there
was a process which must be followed. The affected
fishermen were required to give all the necessary infor-
mation about their losses to the eight officials from
the ministry who were at the hamper distribution
exercise on Tuesday.
Singh assured the affected fishermen that recom-
mendations would then be made to the Minister of
Agriculture Lands and Fisheries and whatever had to
happen would happen. He added that fishermen and
farmers got the respect that they deserved and that
he, being a farmer and fishermen, was aware of the
challenges farmers and fishermen faced. He recalled
that he fished in the swamp with his parents for a
catch to get cash.
Singh said the best fish came from those shores,
Matelot, Grande Riviere and Toco.
He said fishermen of these areas not only provide
fish for Toco but most parts of the country.
Jennings-Smith appealed for assistance for the
fishermen as early as possible. She warned ministry
officials that fishermen should not be told to come
a next day, as it took about a week for those people
to make arrangements to visit Port-of-Spain and have
their issues settled without to much travelling.
Councillor for area and chairman of the Sangre
Grande Regional Corporation, Terry Rondon, said he
was very disappointed.
Rondon said it was a bleak time for these young
fishermen. "This time of the year is net fishing, when
these men make some money, but they have no nets."

was starved for cash so "the 10 days is out, Cepep is
not hiring, what these men will do, Christmas right
round the corner and there is nothing for these men,
who have family to support."
Rondon appealed to the corporate industry to join
in giving some assistance to the affected fishermen
until they can once more stand on their feet.
For the past few days members of the Crab, Conch,
Oysters and Fishermen Association of Oropouche
have been protesting Petrotrin s failure to give them
any concrete answers on compensation.
However, yesterday, when the group took its protest
in front of Petrotrin in Santa Flora, they were given
an assurance by a Petrotrin attorney that their claims
for reimbursement would be taken seriously.
Leader of the group, Robert Nandlal, said shortly
after arriving in front of the gate with their placards,
the group was approached by the lawyer.
"Apparently they knew we were coming here this
morning because almost as soon as we reach, the
lawyer came out and spoke to us," Nandlal said.
"He seems like a very genuine person and he prom-
ised us that several officials were meeting this afternoon
to discuss what they will do in our case," he added.
Nandlal said the group was still waiting for Petrotrin
to pay them compensation after an oil leak earlier this
year ravaged the wetlands in Oropouche.
Coupled with an influx of dead fish washing ashore
on the southwestern peninsula and the public s move
to stop buying seafood and shell food, the vendors
and fishermen found themselves with no market to
sell their goods.
Efforts to contact Petrotrin failed yesterday.
