Fish vendors in Cocorite and Chaguaramas say they will not be raising their prices as yet for the Lenten season.

Fish is in high demand during this fasting period however the vendors say at least for now the prices will remain the same.

However, they tell CNC3 that when it gets closer to Easter and the demand increases prices will be increased.

One vendor has said, for example, that a pound of King fish which is $50 a pound could go up to $65 closer to Easter.

We'll have more in the CNC3 News at 7pm.
