MALLORCA TODAY - Alcúdia's fishermen snub annual cuttlefish fair

The annual sepia (cuttlefish) fair that takes place alongside the boat fair in Puerto Alcúdia, and which is scheduled for the weekend of 9 to 10 April, looks as though it will not involve the local fishermen who capture the sepia, or indeed their sepia. The fishermen's association has said that it will not participate or assist in any fashion as it gets no support from local restaurants which, rather than buying sepia from the Alcúdia fishermen, acquire it from wholesalers. The restaurants argue that they can get high-quality sepia at around half the price than that which it costs from the local fishermen.
