THE Port of Malaga is set to gain a new fish market after their board of directors approved plans to put the project out to tender.
The planned changes at the Port of Malaga will include a new pace for import and export goods as well as a new fish market.
The Port’s board of directors met to approve the tender document to find a company to extend pier 9 and carry out works to pier 8, with a total budget of €325,000.
The group also approved the contract for works on both banks of the Guadalmedina river, where the new fishing area and the fish market will be moved to, with a budget of €526,584.19.
At the same meeting, directors drafted the project for a new Customs building near the Alameda de Colon.
The news comes after concerns over a type of protected limpet have forced delays to Malaga’s planned megayacht marina.
A report into the area put aside for Malaga’s new megayacht marina will look into whether there is a particular type of protected limpet in the waters where the marina will be built, meaning delays to the start of works.
A team of divers will now be hired to produce a report confirming whether there is a type of endangered limpet in the water. The Port Authority maintains there are none.
President of the body, Carlos Rubio, said: “Before starting the work, a complementary study must be carried out, which for the most part has already been done, to verify that there are no limpets, but it is a question that is always requested in any authorisation.”
