TRAWL BOARDS

First half of the 20th century. Wood. Associació Museu del Mar collection. Donated by Albert Sanabra Illa.

The caló is a piece of wood with a round or square section, which was used for trawl fishing.

It was tied to the top of the net to tighten or open the doors. It joins the doors of the net to the sweeps or trawling sections.

The fishermen used to etch a sign on them so that they did not get lost, and this sign usually coincided with the sign they had etched on their boat launching posts.
