Sunset over the Atlantic Ocean and the Acuario del Club de Pescadores - Buenos Aires

The Club de Pescadores (Spanish: Fisherman's Club) is situated on the banks of the Río de la Plata Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Club was founded in 1903 on an old pier built by a French company who used to tie up their coal boats there and discharge the coal into railway wagons waiting alongside. Some time later, when this activity had ceased and the condition of the pier had deteriorated, the fishermen who met there to practice their sport, decided to carry out repairs to the pier and to build a small shelter where they could store their belongings.
