Farmed fish released off Algarve coast

Thousands of fish grown in captivity are going to be released off the Algarve coast on August 6 in an attempt to boost their species’ population, Portugal’s Institute for Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA) has announced.

Around 25,000 sea bream and croaker fish will be set free near Armona island in Olhão, where artificial reefs providing shelter and food have been created and where fishing is prohibited.
