Dans l'assiette

John Dory is the ultimate luxury fish and is one of the most delicate fish around. This fish is particularly prized and relatively common: it's a classic which can often be found on restaurant menus!
Although small fish are most common, large fish of up to 3 kg are rarer but very popular because they enable restaurateurs to use relatively thick nets to catch these fish which are quite flat and thin.


zones de pêche

John Dory is regularly caught on the French coast, from the Mediterranean to the North Sea. The ports of Roscoff, Erquy and Saint-Quay have significant fishing areas.


Techniques de pêche


John Dory is caught by a multitude of different boats, from trawlers to gillnetters.
