Training of Fishermen for the Tuna Industry.
The report concerns a failure to train fishermen for the Puerto Rico tuna industry. The objectives were to train fishermen for the purpose of replacing foreign crews aboard tuna vessels and create a cadre of local fishermen with experience in high seas commercial fisheries. The failure appears to be associated with the lack of adequate berthing facilities and insufficient recruiting time. (Author)
