Tobago boats to get free GPS, wireless radios
Tobago’s 369 registered fishing boats are being fitted with GPS (Global Positioning System) and wireless radio sets free of charge by the Tobago House of Assembly (THA). The first batch of the units will be distributed to the boat owners at the prize giving ceremony of the 2012 Tobago Game Fishing Tournament next Thursday at the auditorium of the School Nutrition Co-operative in Canaan. Secretary of Agriculture, Marine Affairs, Marketing and the Environment Councillor Gary Melville said in an interview that both the GPS and wireless radio sets have cost the assembly an estimated $1 million. He explained that the GPS system would allow operators to track their boats at sea and to locate any of the equipment and engines that go missing or are stolen from them.
