Fish Farm in Playa Quemada

Visitors to the tiny picturesque village of Playa Quemada or guests aboard the Catlanza catamaran trips to Papagayo might have noticed the fish farms situated off the coast of Lanzarote.

Fish Farm Playa Quemada Fish Farm Nets

The farm is owned by local company Yaizatun SA and situated in the area known as Bahía de Ávila. Founded in 2001 the farm was built as a nursery for yellow fin tuna, in 2008 the scheme was in difficulties so the farm took the decision to change their stock to seabass (dorada) and seabream (lubina) with much greater success. Now around 2,000 tonnes of fish are sold each year to major retailers supplying the central markets of Madrid and Barcelona in Spain and Portugal.

The Old Harbour in Puerto del Carmen

Whilst I was waiting for the start of the Leprechaun dive on Saturday, I went for a wander around the Old Harbour area of Puerto del Carmen, previously known as La Tiñosa, Lanzarote.

Fishing pdc Bars and restaurants

I started out from Playa Chica, walking along the coastal path. The sea was flat and calm and it was already a lovely warm day, there were a few people fishing from the shore on the rocks there and a small fishing boat attracting seagulls. Around the corner where the Restaurant Puerto Bahia was just setting the tables, I’m always struck by the gardens in this area, beautifully planted and immaculately kept. It was around 9am, the only sounds were the lap of the waves breaking and the odd clink of cutlery.


Walking around the corner I was really pleased to see  read more »
