Tenerife car rent and excursions

Fishing in Tenerife

As compared with the very rich fishing grounds in the upwelling area, waters around the Canaries are relatively poorer, whereas the narrow continental shelf of the islands limits the abundance of demersal resources.
Nevertheless, fishing activities represent a fundamental part of the identity of the Canary Islands, and many Canarian municipalities are highly dependent on this sector.
The seafloor bathymetry around the islands is typically abrupt with a narrow shelf and a steep slope plunging to more then 1000 m depth, which produces near-shore conditions
similar to the open ocean.
The archipelago is located in the path of the cool water Canary Current which moderates the climate and shapes the oceanographic features of the area.
The presence of upwelling along the West African coast brings deep cold nutrient-rich waters to the surface and stimulates primary productivity.
The recent history of the Canarian fishing sector has been marked by a series of major events: the loss of the access to the rich Saharan fishing grounds when Spain retired from Western Sahara (1975)
The change of status of the Canary Islands which become an Autonomous Community with certain rights over fishing matters (1982)
Spain's accession to EU giving access to EU structural aids and fishing agreements and application of the Common Fisheries Policy in the Canary Islands
