Canned tuna and similar in Spain
Spain, being the second largest producer of canned tuna and similar products in the world, is also number one in terms of quality. 55% of fish and shellfish conversations are represented by tuna in Spain.
Canned (or often bottled) tuna in Spain generally comes from one of three species: Albacore (Thunnus Alalunga) , yellowfin (Thunnus Albacares) or list (Katsuwonus pelamis). The canning tradition initially developed around the exceptional Cantabrian albacore tuna.
Another area with a long canning tradition is the coast of Cádiz (Andalusia), where tuna is caught with the almadraba, or system of traps , which has been used for thousands of years to catch fish as they pass through the Strait of Gibraltar. With a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) Melva and Mackerel from Andalusia, almadraba tuna is typically preserved, like ventresca, tarantello and trunk, in olive oil.
Although they were once typically salty, today The most appreciated Spanish anchovies are the semi-preserved ones (which require refrigeration) from the Cantabrian coast (in the north of Spain) and from L'Escala on the Mediterranean coast of Catalonia.
Sardines are one of the types of most popular and healthy canned fish, and represent around 10% of Spanish canned fish. Another is mackerel. As for newer preparations, sturgeon farming has been developed in areas such as the Sierra Nevada in Granada (Andalusia) and in the Pyrenees in Navarra and Lleida, in order to preserve the caviar.
