Fish names in Greek

Trolling and jigging in open waters, especially around the islands in Aegean Sea, LRF at the shores of gorgeous ancient Greek isles, spinning for legendary sea bass at almost every beach in the country, heavy casting for groupers and dentex from the rocky shores of Rhodes, Crete and other southern islands.. If you are a passionate fisherman, Greece is the country you will fall in love with at first sight.
