Jose Manuel Navarro, president of the Regional Association of Tourism and Hospitality in Valencia (DestíSafor) added that: “Although we often associate langoustine only with Fideuà, they will be working with this product in different ways: rice, sautéed etc.”

Domingo Ciurana, president of the Grup d’Acció Local Pesquera (GALP) and the Confraria de Pescadors, thanked the restaurants involved. He said: “Thank you for coming to the conference because it is very favourable in general for a fishing sector that is going through a difficult situation”.

Apart from boosting the fishing sector and territory and restoring its heritage, Gandia Town Hall hopes that the public discovers the local product which has a great impact on climate change due to the reduction of the environmental damage caused by transport.
