Carmen II - Tuna Fishing Boat. Scale 1:40
ART-18030 - Artesania Latina
This is a 1:40 scale wooden model boat depicting the Tuna Fishing Boat called El Carmen II that fished from the Bay of Biscay in the Cantabrian Sea. Dedicated to tuna fishing in the warmer months, the remainder of the year the boat and crew would travel to other areas following the seasonal migrations of fish. The traditional method of fishing for these tuna vessels is trolling with live bait. This method using live bait is made possible by using small fish caught using a small purse seine, and then keeping them alive on board in a nursery.
