The Jobs of the Sea

Another important aspect is the clear division of labour between men, more closely linked to the tasks of the sea, and women, linked to the tasks.

The shoreline populations have traditionally made a living out of the navigation and the exploitation of marine resources, activities that have formed their own culture and way of life. With the arrival of the industrialization, these chores experimented a great growth. The configuration of a transmission network to get to the markets faster and the development of procedures to preserve the products (until that moment dependent on the typical drying and salting of the canning industry), were revolutionary changes for the people of the sea. But its implementation wasn't a clean break from the old jobs and practices, a great deal of which still live nowadays. There is only need to walk along the shore the appreciate this fact.

Industrialization didn't end either the clear division of labour still in use. The men are still linked to the tasks of the sea. And the women are the ones that work on land, on the fields and the homes, tasks that they combine with the seafood harvest or the confection of arts for fishing.
