In 1996 the group named Fishermen and Friends of the North Coast was formed in response to the issue of illegal shrimp trawling which was causing the fisheries to decline, and forcing economic hardships on local fishers. The FFONC worked together to support and increase awareness of the dangers of improperly regulated shrimp-trawling and got the laws ammended. In 1997 we changed our name to Fishermen and Friends of the Sea (FFOS) to reflect a broader and more inclusive scope and in 2000 we became a registered non-profit organization. FFOS is dedicated to creating environmental awareness in Trinidad and Tobago by keeping abreast of local and national developments, we work to encourage information transfer thus acting as a catalyst for public participation. We work to engage communities affected by unsustainable activities in the process of public participation, and strive to give a voice to the voiceless.
