Despite a new fishing agreement between the EU and Morocco finally being in place, for which Morocco receives €40 million, many Cádiz fishermen have once more had to return to port without being able to carry out their task.
Two men who were reported missing on Friday after setting off from Poniente beach in Motril in a small boat have been located and rescued about nine miles off Cabo Sacratif.
Fishermen from La Linea de la Concepción, Cádiz, have returned to fishing around Gibraltar during the past few days with no reports of incidents, this relaxation in tension coinciding with the arrival of EU inspectors.
A very clear and calm sea early this morning and down on Calahonda beach the fisherment were sorting out their huge nets after their labours at sea.
Had to make an early morning pilgrimage to the bank, pay a few bills, so popped down to Calahonda beach. Very peaceful. The local fishermen were busy cleaning some of their catch…with a lot of willing helpers around!
Four fishermen were rescued early this morning after their boat caught fire about seven miles off the fishing port of Adra, Almeria. All the crew were rescued in good health.
Two sailors died on Friday morning after their boat sank eight miles west of La Coruña. Four other crew members were rescued.
