Product Description
There are several types of tuna that inhabit the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Amongst them, the Skipjack tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis) is favoured by Bom Petisco. A great swimmer, tuna stands out for its elongated and fusiform body. The ancient Greeks called tuna thynō, which means "to rush", because of its speed. Today, we know that some species of tuna can reach speeds of 70km/h and can travel up to 170km a day, always in schools of fish. Even more than whales! However, it is not just their physiology that is worth highlighting: with a highly efficient metabolism, tuna is able to maintain a high body temperature. Because of this, they have amazing physical strength and are able to survive in very cold waters with great resistance. Owing to the temperature of its waters and its volcanic origins, The Azores is a favoured spot for tuna reproduction and is a point of transit on their migratory path. At certain places and certain times of the year, it is possible to see big schools of fish that pass through the Azores on their migratory path. Once it's been fished, the tuna is transported to the Bom Petisco factories. Here, it is cut and prepared by hand, before being cooked. Next, it is preserved in vegetable oil, olive oil or water, to then be submitted to a process of sterilization. Without the use of any preservatives, the result is 100% natural canned fish, highly nutritious and with a flavour that lasts over time. Because sustainability in fishing is important at Bom Petisco, fishing in the Azores is regulated by strict criteria for the protection of the marine ecosystem. Fishing takes place in collaboration with the POPA - the Azores fishery observation programme - a project for monitoring and controlling fishing. The aim is to ensure that no dolphin is harmed by our fishing activity. The protection of dolphins and sustainability of the sea are guaranteed by the "Friend of the Sea" status, which aims to reduce the human impact on the marine ecosystem.
