Eating fish more often, leads you to success.

Fisher’s paste – the delight of taste buds

The sweet sister of fish spread, the fisher’s paste is often eaten in the Delta, during the summer and winter, day and night, with or without the wife. The Danube and Delta fishermen have prepared it for the first time, when spending a night away from home, between reed and willow trees, having available only the all-mighty water.

Locally-known as ‘mashed fish’ or ‘fish cream’, this dish is so simple to make that even a child could prepare it as a game. Healthy, tasty and very nutritious, it can be prepared as an appetizer in dressy dinners during the holidays or festivities or greedily spread on a thick slice of bread on gloomy mornings.

The project of promoting and relaunching the fish consumption in Romania, it is funded by POP 2007-2013, with the support of the Romanian Government and European Union. This project is made by Doripesco during 2013-2015.

The purpose of this project is to promote the consumption of fish and highlights the importance of fish consumption. People can understand the importance of fish consumption for the body only by emphasizing its nutritional properties. Fish is an important food for a responsable feeding and for this reason it should not be missing from your shopping cart because of its important nutrients.

At the same time, we must report the decline of fish consumption in Romania, compared to rest of the European Union (annual consumption of fish in Romania is of 4,5 kg/person/year, of 10 times lower than the European Union. The largest consumers of fish and fish products are Portugal and Spain, which consume 48 / 45 kg/person/year).
