Pesca en Cádiz


Along its lengthy coastline of 260 kilometers, Cádiz has ten ports belonging to the fishing area called the Gulf of Cádiz. These achieve an daily average of 60,000 kilos of fish, molluscs and crustaceans. This production reaches an approximate value of 60 million euros, almost half that of the whole of Andalusia. The most active wet fish auctions are those of Cádiz city, Barbate, El Puerto de Santa María and Sanlúcar. Sardines, Mackerel, Shrimp and ‘White-striped Venus’ are the most common species of fresh fish found here.
