The Government of Lanzarote together with Saborea Lanzarote this week organised an event to honour the fishing sector of the island. At this event, visitors were able to watch documentaries about tuna fishing, and a photographic exhibition of traditional fishing on the island.
Pedro San Gines, President of the Government of Lanzarote said that this event recognises the valuable work and contribution of so many Lanzarote families that have dedicated their lives to fishing. He also said that there is a demand to create a Museum of the Sea, so that the audio-visual material presented at this event will be part of this proposed museum, when more stories and characters that have played a part in the history of fishing in Lanzarote have been identified in this important section of the island’s cultural heritage.
