Espasante Important Fishing Port in the Ferrolterra borough of Ortigueira in North-western Spain. From this port, which is at the other side of the Ria of Ortigueira, just in front of important fishing port of Carino, large numbers of trawlers leave the locality every year heading to far distant places across the globe in pursue of precious tuna, cod, haddock and many other cuisine delicatessens.
