The new Fisheries Complex at the Point Wharf, St. Johnís, was officially opened in January, 2006, but it is not fully operational as yet. This complex is the fourth to be built in Antigua and Barbuda, with the assistance of the Japanese government, but the range of facilities makes it different from the rest.
Under the Japanese grant aid system, the Point Wharf Fisheries Complex was constructed in 2005. This facility is significantly important to the fisheries sector mainly because of its location and the range of services that are offered. Before 2005, fisheries complexes have been built at Urlings, Parham and at the Market Wharf in St. Johnís, all located in Antigua. It is anticipated that the next fisheries complex to be built will be in Barbuda.
