THE Fishermen’s Association of Marbella has agreed, appealing to their responsibility as a supplier of a staple food such as fish, to continue its regular operation with the opening of the market at the usual hours to continue the supply to those facing the coronavirus crisis, as reported by the president of the group on Saturday, Manuel Haro.

The leader of the association has stressed that “sanitation and safety measures will be extreme” and has requested that “only authorised and indispensable personnel be allowed in the market and the pier.”

“The Marbella fishing fleet understands and assumes its responsibility in this international crisis and what we intend with this measure, agreed with the administration and other associations, is to prevent citizens from being depleted at this crucial moment,” Haro said.

“Fish is a basic food and we must ensure its capture and optimal marketing to stores and supermarkets, it is a responsibility of a whole chain and we are the first link, ” said the Master Skipper.

“We will continuously maintain our activity until we receive an administrative order to the contrary,” said Haro, who stressed that from the Fishermen’s Association of Marbella “we also want to send a message of encouragement to all the residents of our town who are suffering from this totally unique situation.”
