The mayor of the Port of Santa Maria, Cadiz, signed the concession granting a license to the firm Futuna Blue Spain SL for the construction of a bluefin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) production centre.

The new plant will occupy a surface area of 50,000 square metres and will breed and export up to 500,000 tuna per year from its facilities. According to its promotional firm, it will be the largest fish farm in the world.

The delegate for Urbanism of the City Council, Patricia Ybarra, emphasised the “concerted effort” made by the technicians of the area to “be able to make this significant investment viable prior to possessing city-planning documents that are necessary to be able to act in lands of the Bay of Cadiz Port Authority (APBC).”

She also expressed her appreciation for the collaboration of the Authority on the technical work carried out, given the "high interest" that the city council as well as the APBC has "for a state-of-the art technology installation to be set up in the Port."

Ybarra highlighted the fact of being “the headquarters of an industry that will carry the name El Puerto de Santa Maria throughout the world in an activity as important as is the commercialisation of tuna, its repopulation, its breeding,” Europa Press reports.

The manager of the company, Miguel Llerena, had said days ago that they had “everything prepared ” in order to kick off the works of the new plant, but a legal report was still pending. For this reason, he threatened to leave for another city to execute the project.

"Our English, Australian and Danish partners grow tired of so many impediments. It is very difficult to give them so many explanations. They do not understand why so many bureaucratic delays exist. If we remain here with our arms crossed, the economic losses would be significant. And I don’t know if we are willing to withstand them,” the manager of Futuna Blue declared at the time, La Voz Digital reports.
