We will teach you how to categorize the fish in two big groups:

The first one: wild fish. It means that fish is hunted and caught in its environment. But the fishing must be regulated to prevent overfishing, so we love the concept of "sustainability".

The second one: farm-raised fish. It means "aquaculture" that fish has been brought in a controlled environment - of course fed, grown and sold. Here in Italy acquaculturists improved their practices, and the farmed fish is without antibiotics, or heavy dyes. All the farm raised fish is controlled, so the quality is much higher.

 

 

We will educate you and our customers to eat many sustainable fish varieties (higher in vitamins, proteins, minerals and super healthy omega-3s with low amounts of chemicals).

Overfish seafood, such as Tuna or Salmon or Swordfish contain PCBs, Mercury, or bad contaminants.

We promote to use locally-caught wild fish (as fresh sardines, fresh mackerels, fresh anchovies...). We love sustainable seafood - farmed or caught in ways that consider as well as the sustanance of fisheries - dependent communities, as well as the vitality of harvested species and the well-being of the seas.

 

Cookery classes are upon request and subject to availability.
