A WORKSHOP to promote the values of ecological, sustainable fishing to children in the Cala del Moraig last Saturday was so popular, BENITACHELL’S Department of Education has arranged another one.

Places for ‘Tu primer taller de pescaeco friendly en el Moraig’ (Your first eco-friendly fishing workshop in the Moraig) were limited and some children were unable to participate, so another workshop has been arranged to take place Saturday December 16.
The free workshop is open to boys and girls from eight years of age.

Participants will enjoy a variety of activities, including making their own fishing rods, learning how to tie knots, how to hook bait and how to fish without impacting the seabed.
In the workshop last weekend children learnt about the most common species to call the seabed home, as well as the most dangerous.

Councillor Myra van ‘t Hoff said:
“It has been incredible the welcome, the children enjoyed while connected with nature and knew the art of traditional and ecological fishing in an environment of great scenic beauty such as El Moraig. It is important that someone teaches them how to fish using only the essentials with the least possible impact on the seas, as artisanal fishermen do.”

Registration can be done in person at Santa María Magdalena CEIP or by phone – 686 907 320.

Participants need only bring lunch and water shoes.
