Palma fishermen need space

CRISIS POINT: Plummeting prices put fishing industry on the Costa Blanca at risk.

THERE are about 100 members of the Cofradia association of fisherman who use the port of Palma and they are looking for the new president of the Balearic Ports Authority, Joan Gual to not only guarantee space for their nets to dry – which they see as being vital to their living and adds to the tourist image of Palma – but also to allow them to sell fresh fish for an allocated spot in the port.

Their spokesman, Rafael Mas accepts that there will be some restrictions concerning the amount allowed for sale but says “The first ones who have to live from fishing are the fishermen. We want to sell fish.”
