Vigo has the largest biomass fish shipping port in the world. Workers process sharks that are stacked onto pallets after processing. Sharks are down to 10% of historical populations and a large reason for that is an appetite for shark fin soup in China and other parts of Asia.
Fish is sent all over Spain and abroad to countries like Portugal, Italy, France and other more distant markets including Asia.
