The body was found at about midday on Sunday, Loop News was told.
Up to this morning, police said they had not positively identified the body, as relatives had yet to confirm the information investigators had received on the deceased.
The body was retrieved by members of the Coast Guard, and it was moved to the Port of Spain mortuary.
Once positively identified, an autopsy will be performed.
Officers from the Port of Spain Criminal Investigations Department (CID) are continuing enquiries.
