On November 29th 2019 the Caribbean Fisheries Training and Development Institute (CFTDI) joined the The Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) in collaboration with the Ministry Of Agriculture Land and Fisheries (MALF) and THA (Fisheries Division) to sensitize fishing communities concerning the new loan facility called the ‘Sea to Shore’ as well as to engage fishers on use of the Fisherman's Record book to improve record keeping by fisher folk.
CFTDI showcased materials pertaining to relevant Seafood Technology training available at the institute. This first joint effort, which took place in Cedros will be an ongoing exercise.
This is an excellent opportunity for engaging fisher-folk, net makers and agri-entrepreneurs within their communities and providing sensitization about not just our products but a range of products offered by collaborating organizations in the Fisheries sector.
CFTDI has trained maritime personnel for over three decades. We know what it takes to be ready to deal with any emergency situation at sea. We ensure that all maritime training meets the most stringent of standards like STCW. Our course offering covers a wide range of basic, refresher and advanced maritime safety training! including Sea Survival, Fast Rescue Boat and Survival Craft STCW courses.
The Caribbean Fisheries Training and Development Institute will be supporting the initiate of the Global Partnership on Marine Litter- Caribbean Node, UNEP Cartagena Convention Secretariat & Caribbean Environment Programme to share daily tips to help you reduce your accumulation of plastic waste and find alternative solutions to single-use plastics during this holiday season.
