Fishermen want EMA to probe dead fish catch

Granville fish­er­men are call­ing on the En­vi­ron­men­tal Man­age­ment Au­thor­i­ty to in­ves­ti­gate the tox­i­c­i­ty lev­els from the Gulf of Paria af­ter they no­ticed fish caught in their fish pots were turn­ing up dead.

With the red fish sea­son al­ready here, the fish­er­men say they were fac­ing loss­es and were find­ing it in­creas­ing­ly dif­fi­cult to sur­vive.

Cap­tain Wayne Pu­ra said they can bare­ly af­ford to buy fu­el for their pirogues, so many of them were try­ing to cap­i­talise on the red fish sea­son which lasts un­til March.
