Hermanos Gandón Menduíña Joint property

From 1980 onwards, they are Wenceslao's sons who run the company: Wenceslao, Manuel, Avelino y José Antonio Gandón Menduíña. Manuel took charge of the company, which was renamed Hermanos Gandón Menduíña Joint Property.

Brothers Wenceslao and Manuel were very young when they began in the fishing world, as their father. Wenceslao was 8 and Manuel 14. Also, as their father, they became skippers.

In 1982, a big industrial unit was built in Aldán. It was allocated to keep the fishing tackle of the ships and hold the company offices.

The same year the Playa de Mourisca ship was bought, which was allocated to fish in Namibia. Later on, in 1994, this ship was broken up due to its age (29 years old)

In the midle of 1984 the Punta Robaleira ship was bought.

At the end of 1986 our company and another one decide to build together a freezer warehouse. There were two main reasons for that: To solve the problems both companies had with freezing spaces and to create a bussiness with open market. So, Frigoríficos del Morrazo is founded in 1986 and our company owns 50%.

At the end of 1987, one of the brothers, Wenceslao, quits the company and took the Ría de Aldán ship. Thus, it begins a new stage in our company.

You can find more detailed information of the ships mentioned before in our ships section.
