Tarantelo is a lean pork belly of wild bluefin tuna from the Strait of Gibraltar. The tarentelo is incredibly well filleted and canned to perfection in olive oil.

It's one of the best parts of tuna, halfway between lean and fat. The Tarantelo has a slightly lower fat content than the Ventresca (half fat) and is characterized by its reddish appearance, fleshiness and taste.

The lookouts were tasked with reporting the arrival of the tuna from the lighthouses. Today this story is part of the legacy of Tarifa, its product, its region, its people...

The fleet that supplies the Conservera de Tarifa operates off the coast of Tarifa. With its strong currents, abundant food supply and perfect temperatures, it's one of the best places in the world to catch wild bluefin tuna. Fishing rods (green stock) are used to catch them and the Japanese Ike Jime is used to kill them.

Wild bluefin tuna from the Strait of Gibraltar

It is a pelagic species that is mainly sociable up to 3-4 years of age. They do not make large migrations and stay close to the coast.

The wild bluefin tuna of the Strait embodies the whole philosophy of sustainability, selective criteria and absolute respect for the species. The fleet that supplies us operates off the coast of Tarifa. There is a rich supply of food in this area which, together with the currents and temperature, makes it a unique area for its catch.

The JC Macintosh fleet catches bluefin tuna for the Conservera de Tarifa.

It feeds on a wide variety of fish and molluscs, which gives the meat its unique taste.

Fishing method - Almadraba
Almadraba is both a fishing facility and a traditional way of tuna fishing in Spain. The Arabic word مضربة / maḍraba originally means "place where is struck". Fishing techniques have changed little over the past thousand years. For this, the fishermen use gillnets, which are attached to the bottom of the sea with anchors and act as a fish fence. Season for the almadraba is spring, especially the months of April and May.

Sehr empfehlenswert !

Sehr schmackhaft, gute Qualität, hat mir persönlich noch besser als das ohnehin schon hervorragende Thunfisch-Bauchfleisch geschmeckt.
