“Pajaritos” Arrive Early this Year

by Maureen Dietrich
1 May 15

The season for pajaritos, a small fish that is a favourite of Mazatlecans, has arrived two weeks ahead of schedule this year. The annual influx of the delicacy usually begins around May 15 said seafood vendors at the Juárez market, but they have already made their appearance off the shores of Teacapán and Escuinapa.

Panga fishermen at Playa Norte said they have begun to see small schools of pajaritos appear in different locations off shore in Mazatlán and hope that unlike last year when the fish bypassed Mazatlán completely, it will be a bumper crop this year.

Pajaritos are selling for 50 pesos a kilo or 60 pesos for cleaned fish ready for the fryer.
