Diversified agriculture of Montenegro
Covering a relatively small area and benefiting from a Mediterranean climate, Montenegro’s agriculture is quite diversified - from growing olives and citrus fruits in the coastal region, through to early seasonal vegetables and tobacco in the central parts and extensive sheep breeding in the north. The largest share of agricultural land resources consists of pasture and grassland (88%), which is used extensively.
Being close to the sea, Montenegro has a lot of fish and seafood dishes, such as fish salad or goulash. One of traditional methods to prepare fish in the country is drying fish, then smoking it over a fire and lastly cooking it.
