Mackerel (Scombrus colias) is a medium-sized fish that moves in large shoals and can be recognized by its greenish stripes on its back. Like other blue fish, it is rich in nutrients. It has omega 3 fatty acids that favor our cardiovascular health, as well as potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and vitamins B, A, D and E.
The European Hake (Merluccius merluccius) is a white fish that usually measures between 80 and 130 cm in length.
The time when a fish is in the best conditions of size and taste to be caught is known as the fishing season. Mackerel in this case is caught between August and November.
Respect for the fishing season is fundamental to ensure the future of the species. This way we guarantee their survival and we are certain that the fish that reaches our table is always the highest quality possible.
Our great respect and love for the sea leads us to firmly believe in traditional fishing methods. At Conservas Ortiz, we have been committed for 130 years to methods that do not harm the marine ecosystem, respect the natural environment, and maintain the species’ population levels.
Mackerel is caught by seine fishing. This is a traditional selective fishing technique, 100% sustainable, which results in a higher quality product.
