The current results from the flow of the Atlantic North Equatorial Current. This current completes the clockwise- cycle or convection that is located in the Atlantic Ocean. It is used by many fishermen across the Caribbean Islands to fish. Also used is the Caribbean Current which flows south of Puerto Rico and Cuba, and over Colombia and Venezuela.
