Work to replace the access gates and fencing around the controlled area in the Port of Eivissa has begun and is expected to last for two months and cost 300,000 euros.
The Board of Directors of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), in an ordinary meeting on 28 July 2021, agreed to authorise the technical specifications and terms and conditions that will govern the invitation to tender issued for the operation of the Fish Market on the Contramuelle-Mollet quay in the port of Palma.
The operating licence will have a duration of five years and the annual amount of the occupation fee will be EUR 24,269. The APB ascribes to the licence holder a minimum annual turnover of EUR 10 million.
These facilities will be used to sell or auction fresh fish caught by the fleets of the port of Palma and the other ports on the island of Majorca, and boxes and packaging will be supplied, together with other services that the licence holder may propose.
The total surface area dedicated to this activity will be 1,898.8 square metres, divided between two buildings. The first of these, with an area of 1,748 square metres, consists of a ground floor containing the auction rooms, fish cleaning rooms, a box store, a service area and toilets. The first floor contains a waiting room and offices, and the second floor contains various rooms and additional areas. Finally, an adjoining building contains a storage area of 152 square metres for tools and equipment.
