President of the Regional Federation of Fishermen´s Guilds of the Canary islands\President of the Fishermen´s Guild de Nuestra Señora de Los Reyes ( El Hierro)

I have campaigned in the environmental movement for 30 years, and I have been involved in leading a project of sustainable fishing in the smallest of the Canary islands for fifty-five years now.

We have had the opportunity to help create the first marine reserve in the north of Spain in the municipality of Carnota, Guild of Lira at La Coruña. In fact, at this very moment, they are attempting to create a macro -reserve and there are problems with two skippers of guilds which we will help to unblock.

The TV Show “ El Escarabajo Verde” (The green beetle) dedicated an episode to us called “ The Ironman” which dwells on myself and the things we undertook and continue to undertake in defence of the environment.

I am the president of the Fishermen’s Guild Nuestra Señora de Los Reyes ( El Hierro), and two years ago a Regional Federation of Guilds was created in the Canary islands which chose us to be their president in spite of just representing a small island.
