NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Minister Of Agriculture, Marine Resources And Family Island Affairs, Clay Sweeting calling the condition of the Bahamas Agricultural Marine Institute “heart wrenching” and reminiscent of a ghost town forgotten under the previous administration.

Giorgio Bain reports.



Parts of The Bahamas Agricultural and Marine Institute are without electricity, and several structures appear neglected. 

Power to the facility, including dormitories and the aquaculture compound, are being supplied by generators. Sweeting says the current solution is unsustainable. 

This as BAMSI has been occupying a sector where it is competing with local farmers – something that was never intended. 

Agriculture Minister Clay Sweeting toured the BAMSI facility this week, along with North Andros MP, Leonardo Lightbourne. 

Sweeting says the focus of BAMSI must be reamped to get the institute back to its original purpose – to help farmers and lead the charge for food security.
