Last holiday we paid a visit to fishing vessels in the port of Palamos. It was very rewarding for everyone, but especially for children, they could see different types of fishing boats. The boats begin to arrive about half past four p.m. The smaller ones, who can not go very far, have been leaving the port the morning before, the largest ships can stay even a week at sea! We could watch the fishermen as they arrived, unloaded the fish, prepared it with ice and carried it toward the box.
Once in the box, the fish is weighed, measured and divided into boxes. That day brought out many prawns and hake, but also large fishes, like a swordfish that caused much impact among the kids.
Subsequently the boxes of fish pass through a film where all sit waiting for fishermen and fishmongers. The screen displays all the information: weight, catch location, price ...
Finally we went to the market to be on premises to buy a few fresh shells for dinner.
It was a very educational excursion where children learned in a very direct path the way of the fish,from the sea to the table.
Recommended for the whole family.
