AN influx of toxic organisms has forced the closure of Malaga’s biggest fishing harbour, the Caleta de Velez.
Fishermen in Malaga are facing tough times ahead after the announcement that five out of the total nine zones may have to close.
The ‘red tide’ – as the influx is known – at Caleta de Velez is reportedly a natural phenomenon caused by a large concentration of toxic organisms.
The Junta has announced that compensation will be paid to fishermen whose area is closed for more than 20 days.
However, many fishermen are being forced to seek alternative employment due to the closures.
