Association of Free Fishermen of Arta
The fishermen of the Association of Free Fishermen of Arta fish in the Ambracian Gulf for red mullets, bream, Flathead grey mullets (Mugil cephalus), shrimps, Sand steenbras, solea, and cuttlefish. Of the above catches, Melicertus (Penaeus) kerathurus (Ambracian Gulf shrimp), which is known in the area as gambari dominates. Their living and especially their diet in the Gulf makes all the catches of the Ambracian Gulf very tasty and special. The semi-enclosed bay’s phytoplankton and zooplankton are rich in high-value nutrients. For these reasons, the fish originating from the Ambracian Gulf stands out even compared to fish from other areas. For example, cuttlefish originated from the Ambracian Gulf compared to Ionian cuttlefish has a huge difference in both taste and texture. Finally, the taste of the bream, this very small fish, that grows in the waters of the Ambracian Gulf is unique and worth tasting!
