A fish fest will be held at the Kingstown Fish Market from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Friday.

 Toshihiro Hiai, a Japanese volunteer working for the Fisheries Division, Extension Unit, is helping to organise the event as a part of a wider push to revitalise similar events.

“The aim is to revitalise fish fest, and also further involve the general public in the industry,” Hiai told iWitness News.

Hiai said the fish fest will serve deep-fried fish (shark, butterfish, kingfish, jack, etc), fish bake, and breadfruit and fish.

Patrons can also enjoy drinks and music by a DJ.   

“There has been less and less fish fest recently in St. Vincent. Therefore I am going to revitalise it.  This one is just a first step for further events coming up regularly,” Hiai said.

He said he intends to organise activities during the fishermen’s month and to also hold community-based events throughout the year.

“I am organising the fest, mainly from the marketing perspective, and the National Fisherfolk Organisation will be the main actor in the event,” he said, noting the continued support of the Government of Japan for the fish industry in St. Vincent.

  1. The PM said all that needs saying when he opined that, “people talking when they don’t fully grasp what this process is about and what is taking place in the court,” an issue that he indeed needs to take some responsibility for since he is the architect of our failed “education revolution” that is the root cause of our lack of being able to “fully grasp” many things.

SMH……..WE LOCALS ALWAYS WANT TO BLAME SOMEONE ELSE FOR LACK OF DEVELOPMENT AND JOBS BUT YET WE ALLOW FOREIGN OUTSIDERS TO BE IN THE FOREFRONT THINKING MORE CONSTRUCTIVE AND LEADING OUR CULTURE WHEN WE SHOULD BE THE ONES INVESTING IN IT AND BEING OUR OWN BOSSES ……JUST SAD.

      If you had the smarts to “help empower the people,” you wouldn’t have had to migrate in the first place. There are thousands of Vincentians who have never studied, lived, or worked overseas who have managed to make a good living in a country with so few opportunities.

      Kudos to them!
