THE Junta’s Consume Pescado Fresco Andaluz (Eat Fresh Fish from Andalucia) campaign recently reached Garrucha’s beaches.

The campaign uses a combination of leisure activities and workshops to inform the public about the different types of local fish that are close to hand in Andalucia, highlighting their great quality and nutritional value.

Children are at the heart of the campaign, so that they can learn about the importance of eating fish while they play.   The Consume Pesscado Fresco Andaluz campaign also stresses that it is vital to avoid catching, selling and eating immature fish if local fishing grounds are to be protected.

Nijar, Carboneras, Mojacar, Cuevas del Almanzora, Pulp and Vera are also involved in the same initiative which has visited – or will be visiting – 203 coastal municipalities in Andalucia’s five coastal provinces.

At the launch of the Almeria campaign, Carmen Crespo, who heads the Junta’s Agriculture and Fisheries department, called on the central government to continue “urgently and immediately” the direct aid that was introduced to ease the burden of the fishing industry’s increasingly high overheads.
