Technology in Calpe Fish Market

Calpe Fish Market

Calpe Fish Market

Before the advent of the new technology in the Calpe Fish Market, the sale of fish from the boats was held daily in the fish hall. It consisted of boxes of fish being auctioned by the person in charge calling out the price. It started at a high price and then descended very rapidly until someone put their hand up to buy and the priced was settled.

This procedure is now highly technical and most interesting to watch. Firstly the hall has tiered benches either side where prospective purchases sit to await the arrival of the fish. In the middle of the hall is a conveyor belt which holds the boxes of fish and above the belt is a cable running from one end to the other. Attached to the belt is a large red arrow and as the boxes of fish move along each one stops below the red arrow. At the same time there is a large electronic plaque which shows firstly the price in pesetas, then the name of the fishing boat, the type of fish in the box being auctioned, the number of boxes, the price in euros and the weight. On the last line is the name of the purchaser. All this is in the Valencio language.

Again the price starts high and gradually reduces and in order to bid you have to have a gadget which looks like a mobile telephone and when you want to bid you press the top of the gadget. The box of fish then moves along and there is a young man who throws a large amount of ice on top of the fish. The box moves further along and a ticket is issued automatically from a machine and drops into the basket.

At the end of the hall in a glass fronted office a man sits at a computer to record the whole transaction.

All this is carried out very rapidly and makes for an interesting hour or two. The auction starts around 5.0 p.m. You can enter the hall through glass doors to the left of the building, mount the stairs and view from the gallery.

A most interesting morning can be spent exploring the old town of Calpe.
Start at the top end of the Gabriel Miro, the main street in Calpe and turn right which will take you into the old town. You will arrive at the Carrer Major, which was the main street of the old town and you are in a delightful square with the most fantastic mural painted on the side of a building. This shows facades of buildings.

At the beginning of several of the narrow streets, you will see the sign Ruta Turistica. It is worth following this route, which will lead you to further beautiful squares, again with the most delightful and colourful murals. One near the church shows a beautiful scene of the moors.

There is also a historical museum. This is a tall narrow building with a clock in the centre; it has steps leading to the front door and is open from 10.30 a.m. to 1.0 p.m. and from 5.0 p.m. to 8.0. p.m. Mondays to Fridays.

The Town Hall is also in a square, again with murals.

There are also some very interesting restaurants in the old town.

Aqua Marina Restaurant Calpe

This restaurant has to be one of the best restaurants value for money in Calpe.
To find the restaurant take the coast road from Moraira and when you reach the second roundable past Consum (including the roundabout at Consum), turn round and drive back along the main dual carriageway for about two hundred yards, park on the right. Walk along until you see the Agua Marina complex which lays back a little from the road. Walk through there towards the sea and you will see the restaurant on the left hand side.

The restaurant is Spanish owned and serves four different menus, from €8.50, €11.50, €12.50 and €15.00. All menus include an attractive salad for starters followed by a choice of soup or a vegetable dish of pulses. The main courses change daily and include fish, chicken, steak, rabbit, and lots more too numerous to mention. Hot bread is also served and there is a good selection of deserts.

The restaurant is quite large but gets very busy so it is worth booking. They are closed on Wednesdays.

Their telephone number is 96 583 4697
