    Mackerel Day



    In the small coastal fishing town of Mutriku in Gipuzkoa the town goes wild over mackerel. Mackrel, verdel or berdel is known for its high omega-3 content. The local mackerel festival Berdel Jaia takes place during peak mackerel season when the fish migrate through this area and fishing boats are laden with catch. Over 4,000 kilos of mackerel are served in the local bars and in the port area. The festivities, ambiance and charm of this popular local celebration are one of a kind.
