On Tuesday 20th July 2021, Hemraj Maharaj of Suchit Trace Penal, was swept away by currents while trying to save a fellow fisherman who was in difficulty near the Caroni River in the Gulf of Paria.
Mariners are asked to be on the lookout for this brave seaman, Hemraj Maharaj.
FFOS are urging fishermen to always take precautions when going out on fishing expeditions, ensure that you can swim, always wear your life vests and be ready to flee from the murderous pirates who are roaming unencumbered.
The Coast Guard continues to fail to protect our fishers, so we must do all that is possible to ensure our own safety.
If you have any information, please contact the Coast Guard at 634- 1476/ 224- 0324/ 800-0777 or the TTPS Coastal and Riverine Unit at 773-9664 or the nearest police station.
