The Institute of Marine Affairs (IMA) presented copies of its books “The Construction of an Artisanal Fishing Boat from Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies” and the newly-updated “A Guide to the Beaches and Bays of Trinidad and Tobago” to NALIS on February 5, 2014 at the National Library.
Both publications will be made available to the general public through NALIS’ Heritage and Public Libraries, and to secondary and primary school students through their School Library Media Centres.
"The Construction of an Artisanal Fishing Boat from Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies” is an historical photographic record of the construction of a wooden artisanal fishing vessel, popular in Trinidad up to the 1980s. “A Guide to Beaches and Bays of Trinidad and Tobago,” generated from the IMA’s research into the dynamics of our beaches, gives directions to known and not so well-known beaches and describes the facilities available to beach-goers. These books are also available at book stores in Trinidad and Tobago.
