Beyond the Blue
From the oceans to our tables
The fisheries sector is essentially one of the oldest activities within the Blue Economy. It provides healthy and nutritious food and livelihoods for many. Around the globe, over 3 billion people depend on the ocean for their livelihood. And here in Trinidad and Tobago, many of us depend on the ocean for our livelihoods too. There are as many as 6000 registered fishers and around forty to fifty thousand people involved in fishing or other fish-related activity such as net mending, itinerant sales, fish farming and more.
