Financing secured for Ponta do Sol fishing wharf

According to a Directorate General of Marine Resources source, only part of the work necessary will be carried out because of the high costs. “This is why we opted only to improve the drag conveyor and to dredge the harbor to improve the fishermen’s safety conditions,” he affirms.

“I can’t yet provide exact dates, but work is going to begin as soon as possible, we’re just finalizing a few details,” adds the source.

In February of this year, more than 150 people took part in a demonstration organized by the Embrace Ponta do Sol Movement to demand the reconstruction of the breakwater at the port, as well as the dredging and requalification of Boca de Pistola bay.
