Fishing

Since the 18th century, “Xávega art” (trawl fishing) has been a traditional practice of our region. Also known as fishing drag, it consists on launching the net overboard, which was initially pulled by young men and women (while men were on board), later by oxen and currently by tractors.

Despite the activity evolution, there is still a very strong fishing culture in the region, which is possible to notice along the coast.
