Abstract[...] The biography of a person is often linked to that of other people, and Bas talks with respect as a person and professional about Tomàs, an old fisherman from Blanes. During their long conversations, Bas linked science and popular knowledge, and what is more important, learned to recognize the technical concepts of fisheries and the importance of being in the field and on board. Bas concluded this period with a trip along the whole Catalan coast. The result of this trip was a classic and fundamental book for understanding fisheries in Catalonia, La Pesca en España. I Cataluña (Patronato Juan de la Cierva, CSIC. 1955), which he wrote with his colleagues of the time, Manuel Rubió and Enrique Morales. [...] In 1962 he moved to the Institute of Fisheries Research (Instituto de Investigaciones Pesqueras, IIP), where he coincided with Bonaventura Andreu and Ramon Margalef.

[...] Bas has been an active scientist: one of field research, management, organisation and education. He taught us that understanding fisheries means going to the level of the fishing vessels, the field, the fishermen, the fish market. All this results in a systematic education that includes the environment, economy and sociology for the understanding of the system [...]
