The Alicante Provincial government is providing new oilskins for fishermen on the 1000 boats of the Province .
The Head of the Public Worksand Development Department visited Costa Blanca ports to deliver them .
The fishermen´s Guilds had requested high visibility hooded jackets and bibbed trousers .The investment has cost 40,000 euros and the men can now feel safer .
It was so important that in these difficult economic times the fishing industry did not have to meet the cost itself .In Campello 34 sets of clothing was delivered .
However most of the new clothing went to the fishing fleets of Santa Pola and Villajoyosa which received 319 and 168 sets respectively .Next in line was Calpe with 101 sets .Benidorm has just a small fleet of fishing boats , ten in total .They are more used to pleasure boats in that resort .
