Today an angling competition was organized under scope of the 'Historical Peninsula Fatih Fishing Festival' for the 12th time this year by Fatih Municipality.

Attending the colorful event, Fatih Municipality Mayor Mustafa Demir did fishing as well. As fish and bread were distributed in the festival, those who achieved ranks in the fishing competition were given awards.

Organized on the Galata Bridge, the angling competition was attended by Fatih Municipality Mayor Mustafa Demir and hundreds of citizens and competitors. Mayor Mustafa Demir mentioned that they are organizing the fish festival for the 12th time and said, "We are organizing fishing on the bridge for the fourth time. We were doing it in Samatya in the previous years.  Now we are doing these organizations in Kumkapı and Haliç so people know about the fish in these areas and know about the sea and our sea culture and gain awareness in this regard. It draws more attention each year. I think we have achieved our objective."
