The opportunity to share the recipe for an exquisite pacu pickle lends itself to something else. We can give a brief overview of the reality of this beautiful fish in Santa Fe.
The Ministry of Production of the province works on the reproduction, sowing and breeding of the species as a State policy. Facilities in Ángel Gallardo and San Javier, together with the Rosario Aquarium, do cross-research to advance on the productive level, leaving behind the extractive activity . His idea is to proliferate the reproduction of young pacu.
This policy aims to generate an economic activity with a high social impact, as it seeks to involve fishermen, entrepreneurs and agricultural companies. But also an environmental impact because, as it develops, there is less pressure on the fish fauna of the rivers.
In this sense, it should be remembered that pacu had completely disappeared in the wild state of the Paraná basin in the province. There are historical photographic records of Rosario where it appears as a piece by the fishermen of the 19th and early 20th centuries. With all this, it is now part of a captive development plan. Santa Fe already has about 30 productive enterprises that work in the form of tests for the generation of information, that is, adaptive research, based on experiences in floating cages on the river, in ponds and in baletons (artificial watercourses) for irrigation of rice creams.
In Rosario, in the Rio Paraná Aquarium , reproductions are made in order to obtain, through the genetic improvement of different populations, pacu lines that have beneficial characteristics for its production in the province, such as resistance to low temperatures.
So today you can get pacu to eat in different ways, like this pickled recipe.
