Red Porgy / Pagre / Pagro / Pargo


Its scientific name is Pagrus pagrus (Linnaeus, 1758) and it belongs to the family of Sparidae. Red Porgy is a so-called “red” fish, like pandora. It can reach a length of 90 centimeters and a weight of 8-9 kilos.

Red Porgy is a benthopelagic species - that is, it lives near the seabed in open waters and on different types of beds (stony, sandy or posidonia beds) in depths that range from 30 to 250 meters, most usually below 150 meters in depth.

It is met all over the Mediterranean basin, in the North and Southeastern shores of the Atlantic, even in the West Atlantic (from the Gulf of Mexico to Argentina). It is an omnivorous species that feeds mainly on benthic cancroids, fish, and molluscs.

Red Porgy is consumed fresh and is considered to be one of the most delicious Mediterranean fish.
