fish-farm-los-gigantesThe hotel association, Ashotel have received countless complaints from tourists regarding the location of the fish farms being too near to tourist beaches.

Whilst the association understand that fish farms are a large part of our economy and every effort must be made to protect the livelihood of the fisherman and his family, they insist that the farms could be situated on better sites away from the busy tourist zones.

The most affected areas are Arona, Adeje and Santiago del Teide.

Our own Mayor of Santiago del Teide, Juan Damián Ramos Gorrín is not opposed to aquaculture but considers that it should not take place in tourist areas, such as the cliffs of Los Gigantes.
