FISHING IN THE SLOVENIAN SEA
Fishing in the Slovenian part of the Gulf of Trieste compared to other waters is more relaxing because there are no strong currents or unreachable depths and, when the weather is nice, the sea is completely calm.
This part of the sea is very special for a few reasons. It is very shallow; the average depth is 17m. This means that the temperature of the sea can reach up to +30°C in the summer and it can drop to around +5°C in the winter. These differences in temperature allow a lot of different species of fish to live in the area. We can say that we have two types of fishing, bluefin tuna in the spring and different species of sea bream, mackerel and horse mackerel in the summer time. In the colder part of the year, we can fish more for cuttlefish, Adriatic squid, whitings, conger… The types of fish here are also changing with time. In the last few years, we’ve even seen dolphins in the area.
