Catalina canning is a family business that began in 1999. Throughout these years the company has been developing a range of products selected from among the best, and what is very important, worked with the expert hands of the women of Santoña.
Every spring its factory begins a boiling period that lasts until June, the month in which the anchovy season in the Cantabrian Sea ends. They buy the fish in the auctions of the brotherhoods to take them to their factories where a delicate and careful process begins.
Its production is limited and by hand, in season, so its consumption is even more precious.
This range of products is made only with the best raw materials, that is, catches from the Cantabrian fleet made in season (coastal, in the summer months). The way you fish it also influences. The fishing gear used by our boats is the hook. In this traditional art of fishing, the Bonitos are caught one by one, with the effort of our sailors, in this way the flesh of the fish is not hit or scratched with the nets.
The so-called Tuna Fleet goes out to sea from June to September in search of the best Tuna in the North. As it is a seasonal fish caught with traditional arts, its extraordinary quality and freshness is guaranteed.
