GUIDED TOURS TO OUR FIRST INDUSTRY

If measured by economic magnitudes, Vigo is the Spanish capital of fishing and leads the international area, because it is the Europe’s leader in fresh fish for human consumption. The extractive fishing activity in Vigo holds 9,000 direct jobs and almost 5,000 indirect ones, just inside the harbor, with more than 350 companies, generating a turnover of more than 3000 million euros per year. Every person on board of a fishing vessel generates more than four land jobs in the areas of marketing, processing and transformation.

However, despite being overwhelming, economic data always pale when they are set against their social importance. We are talking about fishing as a job, therefore, we refer to a human activity developed over centuries and that lead to family dynasties, to traditions passed on from father to son, to a deep knowledge and to the constant experimentation to get the best results.

This beautiful tradition, the big history and the little stories that form it , are married these days with new additions such as the development of the highest technology and the rise of our values of respect for the environment, especially the marine one.

This route deals with all of this: to value both the work and the product, to get surprised by “old stories” and also by modern technologies, to thank a good catch but without losing sight of the goal of achieving sustainable fishing.

FUNDAMAR will show that, behind that delicious fish that you like so much, the effort and the skills of many people are hidden. We are waiting for you.
