Seven-Meter Bluefins Mark The Tuna Route Spain, March 29, 13

 


Seven-meter long bronze sculptures of bluefin tuna, in different localities along the coast of Cadiz, Spain, mark the route known for its activities in the tradition and activity of this tuna species.
The first of the sculptures, which are the creation off the artist Peter L. Barbera Briones, was inaugurated this week in Barbate, one of the localities of the route. The remaining cities along the route where the bluefin tuna activity unfolds are Conil, Zahara, Tarifa, La Linea de la Concepcion, Chiclana and Cadiz.
The monument is a bronze bluefin tuna 3 meters high and 7 meters long, placed 4 meters above the ground.
The initiative, which was developed by the Group of Cadiz-Strait Fisheries Development and co-financed by the European Union and the Government of Andalusia, is intended to enhance the relationship with tuna and exploitation that over the centuries has distinguished these locations in the Cadiz coast.
