Fishing For Food


Times are hard for some in Mallorca. Money is tight, employment is low and the figures for unemployment are higher here than they have been for the last 30 years. La crisis.

One can now see more people than usual fishing for their food in the Bahía de Palma, many of them legitimate immigrants from South America. The Mediterranean Sea does not hold as plentiful a supply of fish as it did some decades ago. Even an experienced pescador will not catch more than about one kilo of fish a day with a rod and line, and often less. The exercise may take him – or her – eight hours of fishing. That’s eight hours of effort whatever the weather. I imagine that none of these hungry souls possess a fishing license.

Now and then, there is good news, when a Dorada (dolphin fish) bites the bait.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 1st, 2009. The time was 17:37:34.
