Gib’s “artifical reef” is in waters offlimits to fishing, according to the Junta’s maps

Thought it was worthwhile reproducing this map which clearly shows the location of the new artificial reef created by the Gibs.

Doesn’t matter to whom the waters belong, you can’t fish there

This particular map was drawn up by ElMundo.es, one of the more right wing newspapers, but even they admit that the Junta de Andalucia official maps (the ones sent to the EU) agree that the area where the blocks were dumped are “off limits” to all fishermen.

What seems to have happened is that Gib is stopping the fishermen from taking advantage of the narrow bit of fish-able sea next to the harbour, and then dragging their nets inland.

I’ve seen the damage these fishermen do to the seas with their nets – I say ban the bastards outright. They leave the seabed dragged clear down to the last clam, killing tons of fish they aren’t allowed to land, and which are just dumped straight back overboard again.

  1. Hello David,

    Thanks for posting the map. I wondered where the blocks were dropped. I watched a couple of BBC TV reports with a clown on a boat pointing at the water & saying the blocks were 10 metres down there, but further information about their location in relation to the coast line.
