The Fisheries Complex has been rebranded and is now under new management.
Lucian Blue Ocean Seafoods Inc. was officially opened last week, and promises to offer Saint Lucians a lot more than fresh fish and seafood.
The newly rebranded company, known previously as the Fisheries Complex is now a public- private partnership; and has been a given a major facelift on both the inside and out.
According to the General Manager, John Sutton, the company aims to change how most people see the industry by enhancing the quality of its product, improving the aesthetics of its environment and building long-term partnerships with local fishermen island-wide.
Though Lucian Blue Ocean Seafoods provides mainly fish, the company has recently expanded its offerings to include complementary products such as ground provisions, a mini-mart and a delicatessen, which offers breakfast and lunch, among other things.
The Prime Minister, along with the Ministers for Agriculture and Economic Affairs were present to show their support for what they consider a positive step in the right direction for the blue economy of St. Lucia.
The launch of Lucian Blue Ocean Seafoods Inc additionally received the support of the Castries Fisherman’s Cooperative among several other restaurants and business houses.
