GUIDED TOURS TO OUR FIRST INDUSTRY
If we measure it for economic magnitudes, Vigo is the Spanish fishing capital and a benchmark in the international arena, as in Europe it is the leader in fresh fishing for human consumption. The activity of extractive fishing in Vigo supports 9,000 direct jobs and almost 5,000 indirect, only within the port, in more than 350 companies, generating a turnover exceeding 3,000 million euros per year. Every person embarked on a fishing vessel generates more than four jobs on the ground in the sectors of marketing, processing and processing.
But the economic data, by forceful results, always pales when they are opposed to social importance. We are talking about fishing as a work, therefore, we refer to a human activity that has been developed for centuries and has given rise to family dynasties, traditions transmitted from parents to children, to a knowledge and constant experimentation to obtain the best results.
This beautiful tradition, the great history and the small stories that make it up, are nowadays married with new contributions such as the emergence of the highest technology and the rise in our scale of values of respect for the environment, especially for the marine environment .
Of all this, this route is addressed: to assess both work and product, to be surprised by “old stories” and also with modern technologies, to thank for a good tide but without losing sight of the objective of achieving sustainable fishing.
With FUNDAMAR’s hand we are going to show that, behind that delicious fish that you like so much, the effort and know-how of many people is hidden.
We wait for you!
