Spanish White Tuna are a delicacy. They are caught in the early summer when they come into the Bay of Biscay in pursuit of schools of anchovies. Conservas Ortiz practices sustainable fishing. The tuna are pole caught by trolling with live bait. Selective fishing prevents depletion of reserves and there is no wasteful by-catch. No nets are employed, therefore, it is dolphin safe. Firm and tasty.
Cooked in seawater, these tuna flakes are from the trimmings used in the regular Bonito del Norte production. Best for institutional or smaller restaurant use.
