The Conserveira Santa Catarina is based on the Azores island of Sao Jorge and produces - true to the motto "One man, one rod, one tuna!" – only "dolphin safe" preserves. So only tuna species that are not endangered, such as bonito, are put in the bag ... or in the can. All ingredients are locally caught and grown and processed by hand. No artificial additives are used, but a lot of love and care.

The special thing about the preserves from Santa Catarina are the finely cut pieces, which can be arranged particularly nicely. And the taste of this tuna stands out from conventional preserves: the consistency is tender but firm, the taste is delicately fishy without being overpowering - a special taste experience!

The bonito (Katsuwonus pelamis) is a genus of its own, which does not belong to the tuna zoologically, but is their closest relative, is marketed as such and also tastes very similar.

It grows about a meter long and weighs over 20 kilograms. The seven dark vertical stripes on the silvery belly are typical. The bonito lives in tropical and subtropical seas, but is also occasionally caught in the North Sea in summer. It is absent in the eastern Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

The species is not endangered around the Azores where all the fish are caught by Santa Catarina.

Details

Even the ancient Romans valued sardines and ate them salted, marinated or smoked. To this day, the sardine is and will remain a high-quality product if the quality and production methods are right.

Thanks to their short lifespan, they have absorbed very few pollutants from the sea and have a high proportion of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and trace elements. 100g of sardines (about 8 fish) contain 40% of the recommended daily dose of calcium and 100% of the vitamin D necessary to absorb the trace elements. In order for the human body to be able to absorb all of these valuable nutrients, it is essential that the sardine is preserved in high-quality olive oil, because only this oil allows the human body to break it down and metabolize it.

For the sake of enjoyment, however, you should definitely not do without the many other great creations from the incomparably rich range of flavors of canned sardines: sardines in a fruity sauce, in white wine, in butter, with water and lemon... try it out!
