The Santa Cruz de Tenerife City Council recommends not bathing in Las Gaviotas beach due to the appearance of hydrocarbon remains and reports the detection, by Red Cross personnel, of this same substance near the fishermen’s association in Las Teresitas .
Thus continues the discovery of remains of piche that in recent days have forced the closure of the beaches of Anaga, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, as well as Candelaria and Arafo.
The origin of the spill remains unknown. The Ministry of Ecological Transition points out that it was at sea and reached land.
The mobilized air and maritime means, sources of Maritime Rescue tell Efe, have carried out an “exhaustive surveillance” and found little pollution in the sea, “very little”, so the origin of the spill, they emphasize, “is not determined” .
From Salvamento they detail that on August 31, the Salvamar Tenerife boat detected “some sporadic cookie” in front of Radazul, specifically, three pitcher balls.
Samples were taken and sent to the laboratory for analysis, with no results for now.
The next day, a plane from the 112 emergency coordination center flew over the area and did not detect anything at sea.
