Why does it deserve our mention?
The fish is canned fresh (not frozen) and is caught in the Bay of Biscay using traditional methods. This compact red meat is prized in Japanese cuisine especially for dishes like sashimi. It is preserved in good olive oil and a touch of salt. The bluefin tuna can live twenty years, and its weight in these Basque waters, is between 20 and 50 kg, while in other areas reaches 200 kg. It feeds voraciously on anchovies, squid and crabs. Olasagasti buy it fresh in the nearby port of Guetaria.
