Porto Novo, Nov 9 (Inforpress) – Fishing activity in all fishing communities in Porto Novo, Santo Antão, has recently been marked by “excellent catch”, bringing a new encouragement to operators, who have complained about the shortage of fish, in this county.
Approached by Inforpress, the fishermen expressed their satisfaction because they have recently been able to obtain “excellent fishing”, especially of juveniles (trestles and mackerel), but also of fish and tuna.
In Tarrafal, one of the most important fishing communities in Santo Antão, where one of Cabo Verde’s main fishing banks is located, Noroente bank, the fishermen’s association confirmed that, in recent times, the catch of these species has been satisfactory.
“This year, God looked at us in Tarrafal, after several years of difficulties,” rejoiced some fishermen, who complain, however, about the lack of adequate boat to take better advantage of the fishing potential that exists in this community.
