Camargue.
www.stratsplace.com/articles/provence2.html

The coastal waters of the Land of Valencia offer a wide variety of fish and seafood, and fishing has long been traditional in many seaboard villages. [...] Tellinas, steamed mussels, sardines, hake, red mullets, sole, and sea bass make many palates happy.
