Castries – Tuesday, March 12, 2019- The Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA) and the Fisheries Department will jointly undertake Boat Safety and Inspection training from March 12 to 15, 2019.

The week-long initiative is a directive of the Fisheries Department to ensure the comprehensive training of extension officers in areas of boat safety and boat inspection. This is in keeping with the Fisheries Act that underlines; “all vessels must be inspected within a year.”

Chief Fisheries Officer, Sarita Williams Peter, stated; “this exercise will improve the competences of officers to provide exceptional and far-reaching service to fishers.”
“SLASPA recognizes the significance of collaborations like these and will continue to embrace them as a medium to develop employees, other relevant agencies, our fishers and by extension, their families,” added Director of Maritime Affairs at SLASPA, Christopher Alexander.

In attendance were field officers of the Fisheries Department and Ship Surveyors representing the Division of Maritime Affairs.

Upon completion of the program, participants will become certified.
