Other Media | MisPeces: Aquaculture, bluefin tuna and gastronomy in Cartagenasia. From September 16 to 19
Wednesday, September 15, 2021
Aquaculture bluefin tuna already has its first gastronomic fair, Cartagenasia, thanks to the APROMAR initiative that has had the support of funds from the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the European Union, and the collaboration of the Cartagena City Council, the Embassy of Japan and the Ricardo Fuentes Group.
Talking about bluefin tuna is talking about the close connection that exists with Japanese culture. For this reason, within the framework of this first fair, which will take place from September 16 to 19 at the Batel in Cartagena, there will be, according to the promoters of Cartagenasia, “a trip to Japan through the 5 senses”.
