About Commercial Fishing in Trinidad & Tobago:

The fishing industry is largely artisanal, but the fishing fleet also includes multigear longline vessels, as well as a small number of semi-industrial and industrial shrimp trawlers. They target a variety of species, including coastal pelagic and demersals as well as the large oceanic pelagic fish species. There are approximately 1 536 registered vessels in the fishing fleet. The estimated total fish landings in 1999 was 10 000 metric tonnes. The industry provides direct employment for an estimated 13 000 persons, and indirect employment for an additional 50 000 persons.

The artisanal fishers operate open fibreglass vessels ranging in lengths from 6 to 10 metres, and they principally target coastal species such as: wahoo, kingfish, Spanish mackerel, flyingfish, and sharp-nose, hammerhead, black tip and small tail sharks. The major fishing gear of the artisanal fishers is the gillnet, followed by the handline and the trolling line. The semi-industrial and industrial vessels range in lengths from 14 to 23 metres. They are equipped with surface longlines from which 300 to 1 000 hooks target the oceanic pelagic species such as: yellowfin tuna, bigeye tuna, swordfish, and dolphinfish, with sharks, Spanish mackerel, and blackfin tuna being considered as bycatch.

Data from the fishing industry is collected randomly through a combination of enumeration and sample surveys at selected artisanal landing sites; data for the offshore fleet (industrial and semi-industrial) is collected from their export and domestic sales records. Total landings are estimated using the results of frequent censuses of active fishing vessels at both the enumerated and nonenumerated landing sites.

Trinidad and Tobago established a Monitoring and Advisory Committee on Fisheries to promote self-regulation and consensus with respect to management measures. This mechanism has established strategies such as season and area restriction on demersal shrimp, and mesh size increase for gillnets. Although there are no specific local regulations on fishing for the large pelagic fish resources, the government has ratified the ICCAT convention and plans to adopt it into local legislation.
