Hunting and fishing
Hunting is available here. It has 13.259 hectares of rice fields designated to this sport.
Fishing is also available here. But because of the high contamination of these waters, and an inadequate regulation, that stops the natural change of species with the sea, fishing here is all down to the "Lisa (mullet)".
The two other species, "Anguilla" and "lubina", have been disappearing gradually.
"Casa del Pescador"
Mainly, the agriculture here is rice. The rice produced here is named "Redondo" or "Bombo".
