The needs of the world may have changed, but Basques have always found a way to use the sea to their advantage. In Mutriku, although industrial fishing has declined – a combination of economic pressures, and because younger generations don't want to spend days out at sea – the link with the ocean is still very important, said Bandrés."The inhabitants and visitors of Mutriku enjoy the natural pools of sea water located in the port, the passion for rowing or fishing is very strong and of course they enjoy the beaches and the natural environment of the town," she added. "The sea has been, is and will be a fundamental part of life for Mutrikuarra."
