One of the five juveniles who escaped custody from the Youth Transformation and Rehabilitation Centre (YTC) on October 3rd, was captured on Sunday November 3rd in the Mayaro district.
15-year-old Jaden Fletcher was recaptured by officers from the Mayaro Police Station at 1:45 pm on Sunday. He was found in an abandoned house.
Fishermen who ply their trade in the Atlantic Ocean, off the south-east coast of Trinidad, say the return of the sargassum seaweed is affecting their ability to catch fish.
A large amount of the seaweed began washing up along the southeastern coast, particularly along the Mayaro shoreline, over the last two weeks.
Fishermen say the seaweed damage their nets and engines.
With their increased cost for super gas after regular imports were halted, fishermen complained that they don’t have the money to repair their boats and nets.
