The crisis is changing concepts in Portugal. Concepts and attitudes in everyday life, in a lifetime. Today, a morning visit to the beach of Espinho shows us that being a fisherman is no longer just for fisherman's son, grandson of fisherman, or even relative fisherman. Today we see at sea, hands on networks, tanned skin from the sun, building professionals - many - and even the pharmaceutical industry, having fish as family breadwinners. For six months, the routine is to wake up at 4 am and go to sea in the hope that it overcomes the difficulty of the work and fill their nets. In the remaining months of the year, turn to the odd jobs while unemployment ceases not to be the reality of every day and the tide is not in favor.
