From its original fishing village, Cannes has kept a traditional appointment, that of the daily fishing. Every day, it is the same ritual. After having criss-crossed the bay of Cannes at dawn, the thirty or so local fishermen display the fruit of their fishing on their benches, right on the ice.
Rock fish, scorpion fish, capon, sea bass, sea bream, dentex, swordfish, red mullet, can be found on the stalls of the Forville market, and above all the pelamide, a bonito with a striped back, which is particularly found between the Lérins islands and the coast. The connoisseurs will tell you, and in particular the restaurant owners around the Cannois square, its taste is incomparable!
