Fish to catch in Belgium for Foodies
Oostduinkerke’s garnaalvissers or shrimp fishermen on horseback are on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. These fishermen trawl the sea from late June (starting with the official shrimp festival that kicks off the season) to early September, fishing for a special variety of brown shrimp, used in Belgian specialities like tomate-crevettes. Sign up for an excursion with one of the fifteen remaining fishermen on horseback, or travel to the NAVIGO National Fishery museum to discover the history of this tradition.
