Marseillan, a town of South of France in Herault Department (Occitanie Region) will organize the eel’s feast for the third consecutive year, on October 7th. That day will provide an opportunity to remember how difficult fishing professions are, and to put in the spotlight fishermen and local seafood. Through a farmer’s market, tasting sessions, and some playful activities, visitors will discover eel in all its forms: roasted, sprinkled with chopped parsley, fried.
