Recovery of the first sale of fish in Sitges, Catalonia
Description/achievement of initiative

The Sitges Fishermen's Guild is made up of 12 boats that fish using traditional methods. The number of catches has dropped significantly in recent years and, for this reason, it is essential that fishermen receive a fair price for their catches. At the same time, it fosters a more respectful fishing with the marine environment and makes local, fresh, quality products available to restaurants and residents with a brand titled Peix de Sitges (Sitges Fish).
Source:
For these reasons, the Sitges city council prompted the construction of premises for first sale, where fishermen sell their fish which has been tallied and labeled at an agreed price and which is advertised by means of an awareness-raising campaign aimed at final consumers through the creation of the Friends of Sitges Fish Association (weekly fish basket).
