Arenal Report

June 18, 2010

Tilapia farmer Holger Naumann, who has been selling tilapia in the region for a year, has expanded to offer smoked tilapia as well as fresh whole fish. Holger began about six years ago to establish a major tilapia operation on his four-acre finca beside the Río Piedras in a beautiful valley just north of the lake. On Tuesdays he makes the 1.8-kilometer drive out of the valley to the village of Río Piedras and from there delivers to Nuevo Arenal and the east side of the lake. On Thursdays he delivers to Tilarán and the west side of the lake. The restaurant Dos Bocas in Nuevo Arenal serves his whole tilapia. Tom’s Pan and Lucky Bug restaurants have his smoked fish. He also delivers to various stores on both sides.

Holger is originally from Leipzig, Germany, and speaks German, Spanish and English. He says deliveries to homes are “not a problem.” Orders can be made by cell phone at 8704-9196 or by e-mail at arenal.tilapia@gmx.net. You may also buy fish right at his home, but you should call first. The pleasant country lane to his farm takes off behind the Soda Ciprés near the center of the village of Río Piedras.
