Coming back after her campaign in the Cantabrian Sea, this resigned and obedient trawler epitomizes the mere and painful remembrance of an harbour that is no longer what it used to be...

At the beginning of the 90's, the fishing harbour of Pasajes remained a great port in the sector, eventhough it was becoming to decline. Yet, no obvious sign was traducing what was going to take place.

Indeed, the economy has been the main source of problems for the fishing industry during the 90's...Implying higher and higher results, many factories and ship companies went bankrupt because of the law of market and rentability. Little by little, the fishing harbour went cunningly narrowing, while, before the crisis, it was full of stern and bottom trawlers. Then began the quarry...The great majority of its 'Old veterans' were either destroyed, dismantled, sold or replaced by newer models, that didn't always fish more than them.
What a pity! :-(
The people that lived thanks to the sea, or admired the fishermen's Work, doesn't look at it the same way now and are deeply affected by those sad events. Things are not going to be the same anymore in the gulf of Biscay...

P-S: if someone could help to identify the black vessel, I'd be much delighted!

This classical stern trawler could possibly be Capredi Dos... :-)
