SITGES FISHERMAN

ARTISANAL FISHING

Artisanal fishing uses low technologies and traditional techniques. These techniques work on small boats in coastal areas, up to 10 miles away. Sitges, a small Mediterranean town on the Catalan coast, with a fishing port dating from 1345 and a glorious past in the XVIII and XIX centuries, has today a small-scale fishing fleet of 10 ships, which young sailors love the sea and their life.
