RARITY

  Likat is only made in the town of Dazzlikat as a delicacy. This fish dish is crafted only in the spring as the Dragonfish spawn to lay their eggs in the shallow waters of the bay.  

SIGNIFICANCE

  Likat is the meal for the abundance of the sea for people who are primarily farmers. The young take reed boats and nets out into the inland sea and catch the fish by the hundreds. Working in pairs, they spread the net between their boats and return to the shore.
