Grenada/St Vincent & the Grenadines

Located just north of Venezuela in the Eastern Caribbean is the island chain known as the Grenadines. The Grenadines stretches from the country of Grenada to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, most of which are part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with the largest island, Carraicou and Petit Martinique part of Grenada. Grenada marks the beginning of the group of islands known as the Grenadian Bank, which stretches north to include the Grenadines and ends at the island of St. Vincent. Combined with shallow waters and its location within the Caribbean current, the Grenadian Bank has ideal breeding conditions for marine life. With high-tech imagery, PiP has identified critical and healthy spawning sites for fish replenishment and is addressing them across the region.
