Gary Aboud says fecal matter in our ocean is not a new problem

Fishermen and Friends of the sea, General Secretary, Gary Aboud

General Secretary of Fishermen and Friends of the Sea Gary Aboud says the report on the high amount of sewage found at local beaches is nothing new.

He claims that several reports have been conducted beginning in 1981 on the fecal matter and heavy metal content in Chaguaramas waters and waters along the North Coast.

Speaking with News Power Now this morning he said that despite the countless reports nothing has improved despite millions of dollars spent to improve environmental management.


He says Fishermen and Friends of the Sea is concerned with the fact that nothing has been said in the report about how to deal with the situation.
