Loreto Serrano regrets the European proposal to reduce the annual fishing days

If 5 years ago trawlers could work 240 days a year, the now known proposal of the European Union will leave sailors without work for two thirds of the year, because they have the most maximum 125 working days allowed.

The mayor stated that “I believe that Europe has made some cuts without really knowing the characteristics of the Mediterranean. The senior patron of the Fishermen’s Guild and I will ask, through GALP Bahía de Santa Pola, to report to the University in Alicante to have the documentation of the real situation and send it to Brussels.

I also talked to the president of the Provincial Council to see if through them we can do a study and when we have reports we will go to Brussels, to the ministry and department, we will continue to fight and protect rights. in the fishing sector.”

Serrano lamented that “the viability of fishing companies when they are forced to work for a third of the year, with consequent economic and labor damage for sailors, ship owners and even their own Brotherhood workers, the whole sector will be seriously affected and I understand your concern.

Cutting fishing opportunities in such a way also means a reduction in fish market catches and harms the supply of our Peix de Santa Pola to the hospitality industry, the food sector and the citizens themselves. At all costs to us to dignify the work of our sailors and improve the quality of the brand, we are ready to fight alongside them to protect their rights.
