On October 27, the project ‘Camonmar2,’ developed by the University of Alicante in collaboration with the Columbrares Association and the participation of the City of Mazarrón, has scheduled an Environmental Route under the title ‘A walk through the Port of Mazarrón’ .

During this route, which includes a visit to the fish market and the Salting Museum, participants will learn about the landscape, biodiversity, cultural elements of the environment and the history of fishing in Mazarrón. The activity will take place on Saturday, October 27 between 9am and 1pm, and is aimed at people over 12 years old. Those interested in attending must register by sending an email to pesca@columbares.org before October 25, indicating name, ID, age, email and contact telephone number of each participant.

The marine reserve of fishing interest of Cabo Tiñoso extends along an enclave with a high ecological value in which the valuable meadows of Posidonia oceanica stand out – a marine plant thanks to which we enjoy transparent waters and which acts as the lung of the Mediterranean – and extensive rocky habitats that include numerous caves and impressive underwater canyons over 2000 metres deep.

Emblematic species such as the bottlenose dolphin, the loggerhead turtle and the gray shearwater inhabit this area, one of the best preserved coastal stretches of the Mediterranean peninsula. In addition, the area has a rich historical heritage linked to the practice of traditional activities such as fishing, which have left an important legacy that is still alive today.
