Fishing for hevrit is a popular Cardassian lesiure activity, at least for those who can afford it. Due to pollution of their environments on Cardassia Prime and attendant population declines, hevrit have been transported to a number of Cardassian colonies, including Raknal V.
Hevrit juice is known to be a Cardassian beverage. It is uncertain if it is the "hot fish juice" mentioned by Arne Darvin as the Cardassians' preferred morning drink. Hevrit may also be an ingredient in Kanar.
