Description

Bonito del Norte is considered by Spaniards to be the finest of tunas. Arroyabe is a venerable company from the Basque region, famed for its firm, flavorful tuna.

Generations of Northern Spanish fishermen have sailed the Bay of Biscay in small boats, fishing bonito tuna using both trolling and live-bait traditional techniques in which the fishing rod is used to catch bonito tuna one by one, allowing the best quality tuna to be selected at the time of capture. These tuna fishing methods also ensure that the seabed is not damaged and that other species are not accidentally captured.

Bonito tuna is an essential component of the Mediterranean diet. It is characterised by an exquisite flavour and softer texture than any other tuna. The tuna belly is considered by many connoisseurs to be the most tender and delicious part.

It is a far cry from the water-packed tuna you get at the supermarket. Warning: once you taste this silky smooth tuna, you may never buy another tin of ordinary tuna.

It is great in salads or on sandwiches, as well as a stuffing for piquillo peppers.

The Source

Arroyabe

During the nineteenth century the products produced in the valley such as wine were exchanged with fresh fish from the Bay of Biscay through what is known as the wine route. Rufino Arroyabe Ruiz de Azua began selling fresh fish on the plateau through this bartering system. In order to keep the fish fresh and in the best possible conditions en route to its destination, he would pack it with ice as he passed the Gorbea mountain. The year was 1898 and after several years of selling these products, Rufino Arroyabe decided to build a cannery and combine it with a winery. In those days, all fish was canned and preserved by salting or brining, which is how Bonito tuna in brine originated. With the help of his son, Rufino Arroyabe, added new products to the initial product line and the production process was improved until they achieved high quality products with an exquisite flavour. In the 1960’s they business moved to a new facility in the town of Bermeo, abandoning the winery and focusing on the canning of Bonito tuna and Cantábrico anchovies. The business also began to try out new products such as canning fish in olive oil (up to that point they only canned using brine). In 1996, they built the current factory in the outskirts of Bermeo which enabled them to combine technological innovation with traditional preparation. The new facility enabled them to increase production in order to meet consumer needs.
