Dalmatia’s Oldest Fisherman (90) Has Unique Catch


One of Dalmatia’s oldest fisherman, 90-year-old Pavo Volarevic, had a catch recently that was probably the most unique of his more than 70-year fishing career, when he reeled in a 2kg original bust sculpture of Marshal Josip Broz Tito.

Volarevic, who hails from Neretva on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, was fishing at Point Radalj when he made the unusual catch. The bust, an original, is estimated to be around 20-years-old and is believed to have belonged to a former high ranking Yugoslav official who was living in Radalj before the war broke out.

Volarevic says he has no intention to return the bust to its owner. “What you catch in the sea is yours,” said Volarevic to newspaper Slobodna Dalmacija.
