Fish in Italian

The Italians are known for being a sea-faring people. Italy has over 4700 miles of coastline! With this much coastline, it’s no wonder that seafood is a staple in this country.

In this lesson, we’ll talk about various types of "pesce", fish in Italian. Some of these you might find on a plate garnished with lemon, and some you might see on a snorkeling trip, or in a fish tank peeking out from behind some coral! Either way, this is important vocabulary to know while traveling.
