Andalucian fishermen will take part in a demonstration in Almeria against rising fuel costs

This Monday, March 21, representatives of the Andalucian fishing sector are scheduled to demonstrate in Almeria. Currently, the entire Spanish fishing fleet is moored up in ports around the country.

This action is the result of the apparent “lack of response” from the Government to the sector’s proposals “to alleviate the high price of fuel”.

As reported in a joint statement by the Andalucian Federation of Fishing Associations, the Andalucian Association of Women in the Fishing Sector and the Andalucian Federation of Fishermen’s Guilds, their demonstration will depart at 11am tomorrow from the Fish Market of the Port of Almeria and will head to the Government Sub delegation.

Representatives of the fishing ports of Almeria, the Almeria municipalities of Garrucha and Carboneras, Motril in Granada, and the province of Malaga are all confirmed to be attending this event.

The aforementioned organizations explained that “as a result of the Government’s lack of response to the proposals made by the fishing sector to alleviate the high price of fuel”, the Spanish fishing sector has decided to moor the entire fleet on the 21st, 22nd and March 23.

They will then await the outcome of a meeting being held at 5pm this Wednesday 23, with Luis Planas, the Minister of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, as reported by
