DIVERS have alerted that the Maro-Cerro Gordo Cliffs in Nerja and the natural environment in the sea have suffered serious deterioration.
The Nerja Association of Recreational Divers has complained that there is no control and surveillance in the area, while the lack of respect for the environment appears to be increasing.
They say that boats come too close to the shore with anchors dragging on the sea bed, as well as there being unauthorized fishing and all kinds of litter thrown into the sea.
In the three months of this summer, the divers say they have only seen the Guardia Civil a couple of time. Nerja Town Hall has been demanding that the Junta de Andalucia approve a Plan for the Distribution of Natural Resources for the area.
