All the "Blue" of the Adriatic Sea

The Rimini Riviera is characterized by a strong seafaring tradition which is reflected in its fishing fleets and the excellent quality of its fish.

Each season offers different varieties of fish sold over supermarket counters, in markets and at the fishmongers. Among these we find mollusks, small crustaceans, mantis shrimps, mussels and clams.

But among all the species present in our sea, the most famous and characteristic is its pesce azzurro (mackerel, sardines and anchovies), defined by tradition as “poor fish”, yet very rich in "omega 3", fats similar to vegetable fats, very useful for brain development and to protect the heart and arteries.


The seafood tradition of fishermen's cuisine has also gradually reached restaurants, hotels, food trucks at festivals or on the beach in sea resorts. And today the fish from the Adriatic is the protagonist of themed gastronomic circuits that often accompany the enhancement of local products at zero kilometers.
