Enquiry

The red spiny dogfish is a marine predatory fish that feeds on a variety of marine animals. It lives on the seabed, where it blends in with its surroundings and waits for its prey. They can grow up to 50 cm and weigh over 5 kg, with a large head with a large mouth taking up a large part of the body. The red spiny dogfish, as its name suggests, is characterised by its red to reddish-brown colour and also has various growths and spines around its body. The spines, which are located on the back, have venom glands and cause pain when pricked. According to statistics, the scorpionfish caught in the Adriatic is estimated to weigh half a kilo. However, the meat of the spurdog, whatever its size, is highly valued on the market.
