  • "Consuming local fresh fish helps to support the fishing industry and local fishmongers," said Manuel Haro, president of the town's fishermen's association

Eight purse seiner fishing boats, which have been confined to harbour since 1 March, have resumed fishing off the Marbella coast this week.

The president of the Marbella fishermen's association (cofradía de pescadores), Manuel Haro, has called on the town's residents to eat fresh fish from the local markets: "Consuming local fresh fish helps to support the fishing industry and local fishmongers, many of whom are offering to take orders by phone or Facebook and are delivering to homes."
