Squid fishing

One of the more traditional fishing methods of the island of Menorca is the squid capturing.The boats used by fans of this addictive fishing way sail from their home ports (Mahon, Fornells or Ciutadella) a couple of hours before sunset to take advantage of the busiest times of the squid.

 These cephalopods are very appreciated in gastronomy. They travel in groups that may have only a few or dozens of animals searching for food (small pelagic fish such as mackerel, bream or sardines)

 The "Marias", a traditional "llaut" used for squid fishing
