Mitsos fishingtours

Mitsos Koularas invites you to join him on his boat as he works in the Gulf of Kalloni. The fishing expeditions start in the remote harbour of Skamnioudi, close to Lisvori and Polichnitos.

The area of Skamnioudi / Lisvori is famous for the delicious crops which the farmers cultivate in this area: chickpeas, anise (the main flavouring for ouzo), cumin, spring onions, and, of course, olives.

In the winter time fishermen with a special licence (like Mitsos) exchange their nets for a diving suit to collect mussels, oysters, scallops and other seafood.

The philosopher Aristotle spent a part of his life around the Gulf to analyse the way of reproduction of cuttlefish. That is why the Gulf is also called 'Aristotle's Lagoon'.

Our fishing expeditions poster!

Together with the introduction of our fishing expeditions, Pandora Travel developed a poster with all the fish, seafood and other animals living in the Gulf of Kalloni. On this poster we describe 48 species with their name in Latin, Greek, English ánd Dutch.

The fishermen of the Gulf of Kalloni catch several kinds of fish and seafood: octopus, cuttle fish, bream, sardines, sole, seabrass, wild shrimps, scorpion fish, red and grey mullet, picarel, pandora, wild mussels, oysters, scallops, sea urchins….

The poster will help you understand the catch during our fishing expedition, and it will be useful when you order your seafood in the local restaurants. Contact us for more information about the fishing expeditions and for ordering the poster! (A3, plasticized)
