Pêche au lamparo and sardinade

Canet port

Pêche au lamparo


The  technique of lamparo fishing was imported by Italian fishermen during the 19th century and consists of attracting fish with light.

Small boats with large lamps overhanging the water set out at night from March to October. Attracted by the light the fish, mostly anchovies and sardines, gather round the boat and are caught in waiting nets.
