Six fishermen and two boats from Orange Valley are missing after another pirate attack in national waters.
President of the Carli Bay Fishing Association, Imtiaz Khan, said several boats from both Carli Bay and Orange Valley were out in the Gulf of Paria when the pirates struck. He says they don’t know whether the pirates were locals or Venezuelans.
Fishermen on a couple of boats were able to cut their nets and make it back to shore to warn everyone about what was happening.
Imtiaz Khan told us the T&T Coast Guard responded quickly to the report.
He says all Carli Bay fishermen and boats appear accounted for, but it appears their comrades from Orange Valley may still be missing.
