Over the years, Aguirrebarrena developed a true service for catering.

Our catering range:

The products we offer are coming from sustainable and traditional fishing methods. We buy directly to our 350 fishermen network (sea and river) as soon as they get caught, without going to fish auctions.

French wild eel can really make a difference in your menu when planning festive meals or appetizers. Your guests and all your customers will appreciate the range of french traditional fish products.

They pair perfectly with:

  • Appetizers or Seafood platter like fresh cooked shrimps (Palaemon longirostris)
  • Your high-end menu, with glass eels and wild salmon from Adour  (Salmo salar)
  • Your mid-range menu, with french wild eel (Anguilla anguilla), Lamprey and Allis Shad


We specialize in European eel (Anguilla anguilla) with more than 130T of coastal, river or estuary fishing in Atlantic or Mediterranean sea.

It is stored in our fish ponds by our fishermen and/or collected by our team with our tank trucks.

French wild eel  (Anguilla anguilla) can be shipped live anywhere in France within 24h.

All our products are available fresh or live.

We also offer them frozen for convenience purposes.

These traditional french products are available all year round or in season based on to the fishing and quotas that our network of fishermen comply with. Give a call to our sales department at +33 558 771 226 to check on price and availability
