Visiting Fish Market on a guided tour in Pasaia

2      8

The Basques have always had a close relationship with the sea and fishing. Despite the decrease in the inshore fleet in the Basque Country, there are still professional inshore boats in the ports of Bizkaia and Gipuzkoa.

In the Pasaia fish market, fish is sold by auction. Although there have been technological advances, the operation of the auction is basically the same as in the last century. During the visit, you will know the path of the fish from when the arrantzales unload it in the port until it reaches the fishmonger.

We will see the fish auction and in addition, the guide will explain the different fishing gear used in the area and how the Fishermen's Guilds work. Finally, we will enjoy breakfast next to the fish market.
