The tanks of Antonio were not that successful. The tanks with the least fish had 20 live individuals, and the tanks with the most had 40. This meant that more days had to pass to allow the Seriola to grow a bit stronger, and hopefully survive the transportation process.
15 specimens were randomly caught from my Winning tanks that contained the larger fish. They were removed from their tanks, placed in a bucket with ice (this kills them), and ...
... of them. If most of the hatchling would be dead tomorrow, then we would have to wait for time to pass so they would grow stronger, if the majority would survive the experiment could begin. Most of the day was about catching the fish in bucket, walking over to the lab, and slowly pouring them content into the tanks making sure that there 125 fish per tank. Then a small amount of algae and rotifero was placed in the tanks for food. ...

We wanted to go to Maspalomas to see the sand dunes and have a swim there, but the bus went straight to Las Palmas. We hopped on and headed home. Next time we will rent a car for the weekend and do the sand dunes and more beach camping. ...

The day ended early because I had to wake up at 6:30am to get a bus to Puerto Rico to go fishing. That night I had a Mojito of Canaria, a very sweet mojito based on banana and banana liquor. ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSanta Catalina Hotel Las Palmas
We arrived to Hotel Santa Catalina, which is located centrally in Las Palmas, some time around 22:00 pm, local time.
The hotel was beautifully decorated with lights all over the place. Additionally, there were three sets of Christmas trees along the hallway covered with lights, which made the atmosphere fabulous.
We were given a room looking towards the back side of the garden. It was really a nice and quiet room, so some nights, thanks to the beautiful weather(20C), we could sleep with open windows.
Positive remarks: the whole hotel was really clean and tidy. The bed sheets/towels were changed every day.
The breakfast was nice, although bad quality coffee, as the coffee is maintained as a self-service from a coffee machine.
The location of the hotel is very central. But if you want to go to either (Triana/Mesa y Lopez) shopping street, taxi is needed.
The taxi fare is 1,70 eur daily tariff, 2,40 eur night tariff. Normally, the taxi ride ranges between 3-5 euros anywhere in the city.
Nice and cheap prices for the food/drinks in the bar of the hotel.
Michelin star restaurant for nice prices.
Negative remarks: few of the staff at the reception/waiters were rude and uninterested in the customers.
The rooms had only one key, and there was always a queue to leave or pick up your room key!
The toilet was too small and no ventilation whatsoever in the bathroom. (The room was ok though).
