“We have picked up the glove that the Maritime Captaincy threw at us, with which we met before the summer season began to try to solve this problem, which also requires the involvement of the State Security Forces and Bodies”, said the councilor Citizen Security delegate, Alejandro Rodríguez.
In the case of the capture of clams, the Delegate Councilor for Fisheries, María Sacramento, explained that the intention is to expand the campaign that the Junta de Andalucía already has underway and to which the City Council has already joined with messages on Onda Punta Radio and on social networks. Now, the use of a drone with a public address system will be added in the month of August “to defend, as far as possible, the employment of the shellfishers and the families that live from this professional activity, and to protect the environment, trying to people are aware that collecting coquinas at low tide is an illegal activity”
