Sea fishing is a profession that runs in Coentrao’s family. He has now bought fishing boats and is now into full time fishing.

Explaining his new career to Empower Brand Channel, he said:

“Life in the sea is not a shame, as many people think.

“It is a job like any other. Not only that. The sea is beautiful and we need it, it has that there are people working here and the profession should be respected like any other.”

 “People who love the sea and who want to experience the sea need to follow his will, his dream.

“It is also a job for the new generations. My father had a boat, he used to fish and always went with him as a child. My life was the sea: the sea and fishing.

“Of course, I knew that football would one day end and that I should take a new direction in my life. And my happiness is this boat and this is the life I want to lead.”
