Boat Builders receive further training in building of climate smart vessels

Naval Architect and Boat Builder Derrick Menezes is on the island training boat builders in modern boat building techniques to update their skills and build capacity to construct sea-worthy vessels, climate resilient, and modernized under the Fisheries Division and the Ministry of Blue and Green Economy.

Fishermen will now have the option to purchase a boat that is made from a uniformed pattern that is built locally and not have to import these modernized units.

Fourteen (14) boat builders are being trained along with their workshop apprentices.

The training is being undertaken by the Project Implementation Unit of the Emergency Agricultural Livelihoods and Climate Resilience Project with assistance from the Fisheries Division and the Ministry of Blue and Green Economy.
