Canneries here pack a large share of Portugal's cele brated sardines, which challenge cork for second place among the country's exports. Tunnies like those floating in the turquoise water are also destined for tins. Many boats co-operate to catch them, each taking a corner of a vast net and closing it until the water seems alive with leaping fish.
