Eating fish more often, leads you to success.

Smoked bighead carp – the flavour of smoked fish

As we confirmed above, the savoury bighead carp, sometimes reaching the well-deserved 100 kilograms, is a delight for chefs who are lucky enough to get their hands on it. And when they’ve had enough fish soup, fried fish or complicated fish pasta, patient chefs also smoke it.

This gives the bighead carp a particular taste and scent, by salting it, resting it in a smoke atmosphere and drying it out. These are the tastes that can be found only in the heart of forest mountains and on the banks of clear and icy rivers.

The taste is unique, and connoisseur fishermen salute the true and well-known recipe smoked bighead carp, covered in golden and sky-blue garments, great to smell all day long.

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.

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).
