This contract is part of the Blackfish Processing Station Project in Barrouallie which is being funded by the JOCV, SVG Office.

The project is aimed at lifting the sanitary standards of Blackfish products, which the JOCV Office said “has long been one of the chief concerns for the fisheries development in this country.”

The project was designed by Yasushi Tanaka, Community Development Officer and member of JOCV, attached to the Fisheries Division.

The JOCV said that construction will be completed by the end of March, 2005.
