'Mater' Tuna Boat Museum

MATER is the last big Basque wooden tuna ship. After it stopped fishiing, it was saved from being broken up by Itsas Gela, in 2003. Nowadays, MATER is docked at the port of Pasaia, and has become a true living piece of maritime heritage. This peculiar EcoActive ship has two objectives: informing about the sustainability of traditional Basque fishing techniques and raising awareness about the importance of caring for the sea.
