Pelicans flock to the shrimp trawler for the discarded fish, off the North Coast, yesterday.

Environmental watchdog group Fishermen and Friends of the Sea says illegal trawling for shrimp is destroying the sea bed along the North Coast and it is now calling on the government to act.  

In an expedition earlier today, the group’s corporate secretary Gary Aboud took our team of reporter Sharlene Rampersad and cameraman Neil Romain out to sea to witness the illegal activity first hand.
