In the heart of the Natural Park “Bahia de Cádiz”
you will find the perfect site for practising a
typical way of fishing called “despesque” in Spanish.
This tradition dates back to ancient times and
consists of different methods of capturing fish that
have entered the marsh of a salt factory through a
channel and gone through a natural life cycle there.
The fry enters from November to April to grow out in
the months of spring and summer by nourishing on
what the marsh offers them, for instance algae,
plancton, worms or small crawfish. The species most
commom in the marsh are those that are able to cope
best with its high salt content, such as soles,
perches or eels.
This activity starts out with a welcome apertitif,
followed by the actual activity of fishing in which
you will get assistance from someone experienced.
The fish that actually gets caught, will be flavored
and cooked on
blaze in the same instant
Later on, in the quarters of the workers of the
marsh, the participants will be served products of
the marsh, for example cooked shrimps, shrimps in
tortillas or any of the other fish that they have
fished before, for lunch. In addition to that, there
will be plenty of wine and beer from this region to
go with the meal to make this experience
