The fish calendar
Like most natural produce, the different fish species also have periods when they are at their best. By buying fish that is in season you get to eat the most flavoursome fish.
Why is that? Often it has to do with the waters they swim in, the amount of food that is around and the distance(s) the fish have travelled. As fish isn’t at its best during the mating season either it makes ecological sense to leave them be and allow them to breed so that fish stocks are maintained.
All very logical and sensible of course, but how do we know when a particular fish is at its best? A glance at the fish calendar will tell you what fish is the most flavoursome when.
