Barbados scales up fishy business

Barbadian fishermen are getting huge support

Barbados is investing heavily in its fishing industry with the renovation of five fish markets and planned improvements at an additional three. Barbados is famous for its fish market at Oistins where tourists congregate on Friday nights but flying fish is available in many places around the island.

The Pile Bay Fish Landing Facility has joined the list of renovated markets featuring top quality material on the countertops, which allows it to meet the sanitary standards required for exporting fish.

Renovated at a cost of B$1.5 million (KY$620,000) by the Barbados Port Inc, the market, known for its Sunday limes and bustling business, is now disabled friendly and outfitted with solar panels on the roof as the government invests in renewable energy. It also features lighting designed to protect hatchling turtles, and has a variety of plants.
