In Season

Just like fruits and vegetables, seafood products also have their own seasons. Very few people know about them and adapt their consumption to the natural rhythms of the sea. By now we are used to finding most kinds of food all year round and we expect to eat this fruit or that fish whenever we want, forgetting that nature produces it based on the needs of nature rather than the market.

Fish seasons depend on their reproductive cycle. By only eating them outside their reproductive season, we give a chance to the species to reproduce every year and the stocks to be renewed.
