A team from the government of France’s Public Information Department is in St. Vincent and the Grenadines to film a documentary on the tradition and history of the harvesting of the pilot whale (‘black fish’).

The four-member delegation resides in Barrouallie and is expected to interact with local fishers.

The visit to St. Vincent and the Grenadines is part of a Caribbean tour by the team to showcase the manner in which the regional seascape continues to influence livelihood.

A courtesy call was made on Minister of Agriculture Saboto Caesar, where the showcasing of agro-tourism in St. Vincent and the Grenadines and traditional agricultural practices were discussed.

The team’s visit is facilitated by Alliance Française. They are expected to leave the SVG on Sept. 21.

  1. I hope so JASON, because killing those intelligent mammals is nasty and wicked.

    Calling the French names just shows you ignorance, how would you like it if the called you “a worthless dirty dog” Oh, sorry forgot the PM has got a copyright on that, its one of his names that he uses to describe Vincentians who he doesn’t like.

    Or perhaps seeing as you have named them as frogs [which hop], how about if they called you a ‘jungle bunny’ [which hops]?
