Wild Salmon from Adour (Bay of Biscay)

Our fishermen catch the Atlantic wild salmon (Salmo salar) at the Adour’s mouth using a drift net allowing to haul live fish with optimum quality. The season is very short, from March to the end of July and each salmon is tagged for its traceability and quotas compliance.

Its exceptional flavor is highly sought after by high-end chefs and smokers.

Lamprey and Allis Shad from our estuaries

These traditional catches announce spring. They are captured at the entrance of Atlantic rivers

Highly anticipated, they both have a unique flavor and texture revealed by traditional recipes.

  • Lamprey (Petromyzon marinus) sold live or processed to allow for specific recipes.
  • Allis Shad (Alosa alosa), iced once caught, sold fresh daily.

Both species share in common their seasonality and the fact that they are mainly sought by restaurants, caterers and canneries in the Bordeaux area.
