About Šime

Hello, I'm Šime, captain of the fishing boat Roza. Welcome to a trip that will show you the charms of commercial scampi fishing in the beautiful Velebit canal.

As a child, I grew up in Barić Draga, a place located right in this canal, and I was a passionate fisherman from an early age. I started fishing with my father when I was 6 years old, and later I turned to spearfishing. My love for fishing led me into commercial diving, which I did for 13 years. Because of my great love for my hometown, I wanted to stay in Barić Draga more often, and that's why I decided to buy a boat and a license, and since 2021 I've been engaged in commercial fishing.

Our goal on this trip is to hunt for Nephrops Norvegicus, a scampi (langoustine) that is one of the tastiest and most valuable culinary foods. Fishing for scampi with pots/creels in the Velebit canal is a traditional activity of this region, and this method of fishing is sustainable and selective. This means that we release smaller specimens and only scampi of appropriate size are caught, thus maintaining the scampi population. Also, the pots we use do not damage the seabed, so it can be said that this method of fishing is also environmentally friendly.

During the trip, we will show you what the scampi fishing pots look like and how fishing is done in practice. This trip is ideal for anyone who wants to learn something new about traditional fishing and enjoy delicious local specialties and the beauty of nature, from the beautiful mountain Velebit above us and the island of Pag below us, crystal clear sea and interesting bays for resting and swimming. See you on boat Roza!
