The Kayak Angling Clubs from Almuñécar and the Rincón de Gójar were busy one Sunday around the middle of September, cleaning up beaches and waters.
These club, whose members fish from their kayaks, targeted Playa el Pozuelo and the rocks either side of Playa Tesorillo in Taramay, Almuñécar, picking litter from the rocks and fishing it out of the sea.
The clean-up operation began first thing in the morning, starting with picking up litter from the rock between El Pozuelo and El Tesorillo on which the fort stands.
Once they had finished that, they took to the sea to collect any debris found floating on the surface, which had all been brought down by the sea currents from Almería.
“Much of the debris were polysterene seedling trays from the plastic greenhouses,” explained the clean-up coordinators, Carlos Ferrón and Jesús Morales.
Almuñécar Councillor for the Environment, Luis Aragón, pointed out that it was not the first time that anglers from the Club Costa Tropical Almuñécar had carried out this type of voluntary work, as they had recently participated in the clean up of the rocks and cliffs around Punta de la Mona.
