Divers and Free divers should be responsible in their hunting and collection

islands of Trinidad and Tobago are located at the mouth of the Orinoco River which
empties many of the rivers of South America into our waters, thereby bringing

Trinidad the water tends to be a green / brown color with limited visibility,
