The Aragón Sea, Reservoir of Mequinenza, was formed through the construction of a dam of the same name in the bed of the Ebro river. This large inland sea extends from Mequinenza to Escatrón.
The Aragón Sea hosts another great treasure in its waters: a wide array of fish species that is unique in Europe. The abundance of catches and, above all, their size, makes it a mandatory destination for fishing-fans from all over the world.
