The Cabildo de Lanzarote continues with the removal of the sea cages from Playa Quemada. Of the initial 53 aquaculture farms, only nine remain today.

"I reaffirm the rejection of the insular Institution to this economic activity that has been shown to be harmful to the island's coast," he insisted this Tuesday in a press release.

The president of the Cabildo de Lanzarote, María Dolores Corujo , welcomed the progress of the proceedings and reaffirmed the rejection of the insular Institution to this economic activity that has been shown to be harmful to the island's coast.

Dolores Corujo guaranteed that "not only will we finish removing the cages in Playa Quemada, but they will not be installed in any area of the Island."

"These are the result of an erroneous political decision unfortunately made in the previous term by the Canary Islands Coalition and this is demonstrated by three technical studies that portray the degradation that the cages represent for our coastline," the president remarked.

Along the same lines, the mayor of Yaiza, Óscar Noda , explained that “these three studies show the problem of marine cages for sebadal , even causing accumulations of mud. Sebadal is a very important plant for its contribution to the environment and marine diversity”.
