The four tons of horse mackerel that they fished on the beaches of Moñitos, Córdoba between Friday and Saturday, is a blessing for hundreds of families who for more than six months suffered physical hunger due to the coronavirus pandemic.
One of the beneficiaries of this sub-store is Edelberto Morelo, a fisherman in the area, who considers that this natural phenomenon is a “blessing from God” to be able to reactivate the profits from his trade.
“From Friday at dawn we began to notice the presence of horse mackerel, we checked the nets and we noticed that they were loaded,” he says excitedly.
Then came the jubilation! because kilos and kilos of horse mackerel had fallen into the gigantic trammel to the astonishment of groups of fishermen.
Once the intestines and scales were removed, the fish ran to restaurants and the market place of Lorica and Montería to offer the kilo between 18,000 and 25,000 pesos.
