This is how it’s done at one of the Canary Islands’s last operating salt flats. Located on the island of Lanzarote, Salinas de Janubio was constructed in 1895 to produce salt for consumption and to meet demands of the region’s once robust fishing industry, which utilized the high quality, natural salts for fish preservation.
Today, artisanal salt production on the Canary Islands is in decline, but workers at Janubio continue to use traditional methods to extract salt from the sea, and hope to maintain the salt flats for future generations.
