On skilled Latvian trade – lampreys fishing

The river Salaca (and Svetupe) have been nominated as the only places in the world where lampreys are fished in industrial scale  by using a 150 years old method  - „a weir” (a plank-way of pods placed across a river, all together 3 weirs). Accompanied by a local fisherman one can go and see the weir, the fishing process and taste grilled lampreys on the spot.
