IN BRIEF - One man, one hook, one bluefin tuna

Tuesday, September 19, 2023

Isabel Laguna I Tarifa (Cádiz), (EFE).- “One man, one hook, one bluefin tuna” is the law of JC Mackintosh, a family business based in Tarifa (Cádiz) that has become the first Spanish fishery of this precious species that achieves the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) sustainability certificate, an “eco-label” with which it travels to the most demanding and aware international markets.

Born in 2015, the fishery, the third tuna fishery to achieve this qualification in the world, is also the first Andalusian to obtain this blue seal that accredits its respect for the sea. A parameter increasingly demanded by consumers.

One by one, by hand

With three boats (“Barbara and Sandra”, “Daserbe” and “María Inmaculada”), the company fishes, sows to order. In the waters of the Strait of Gibraltar, one by one and with artisanal processes such as the hand line, the 'greenstick' and the hand rod.

Unlike almadrabas, which catch tuna weighing about 300 kilos in spring, the time when they arrive from the Atlantic to spawn in the Mediterranean, when they are most juicy, this fishery works all year round. With smaller tuna, with the minimum of 30 kilos established by legislation.

Attracted by bait thrown into the sea from boats, tuna bite a hook from a fishing line. After which they receive an electric shock that stuns them.

Then two men, with hooks, lift them by hand from the sea to place them on some mats in the boat.
