In the sea region of Lesvos there is a high quality of fish catch, probably due to the climatic conditions and the components of the sea. The sardine of Kalloni is well-known, as its taste is much better than in any other region of Greece.?
The salted fish is also one of the characteristic products of Lesvos. Salted means processed fish, preserved in salt and packed in tins. On the island operate small units which process and package fishes, such as sardine, common mackerel, chub mackerel, anchovy and bonito.?
